The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

1. Overheard from the backseat of the car the other day, "Brooks I just threw a booger on you."


2. Reese telling me that he didn't want to go to bed until "thirty-mine." I asked him if "thirty-mine" is what he said, and he said, "Yes, it is after twelve."

3. Yesterday at lunch he said, "I wish I was a fish." I said, "A fish?" He said, "Yes so I could swallow up Jonah. It would be all yucky inside of me, and then I would spit him out."
