These people crack me up here. The following are things that have been said to us…
“Bless his heart. By the way, that is a southern term ya’ll aren’t familiar with yet. All you need to do is say that and then whatever you say about a person after that is OK.” It’s true.
“Are ya’ll having a good time shooting each other?” Said to Corbin and a neighborhood friend by the friend’s mother as they were shooting air soft guns at each other. A few days later, Bryson was taunting Corbin by shooting all around him and so Corbin went into a rage and started shooting Bryson. He shot his eye. Needless to say, their guns are gone. It was actually quite funny and Kelly and I laughed, but we put on our parents-are-not-happy face while in their presence.
“Do ya’ll have a church to go to? You can come to ours!” What great missionaries they all are! So many people so freely talk about their church and God here. It is a welcomed change.
“Have ya’ll got chiggers yet?” Actually, yes. Addisen is the first.
“My wife’s at the Auburn game,” said a husband while in the presence of his son. Role reversal and bad example.
“Have you heard anyone with an accent yet?” Said to me by someone who had quite an accent. I didn’t know what to say. My first thought was, “Are you in denial?” I finally said, “Uh, you have one.” She giggled and said, again in a southern accent, “Oh, I have one, but mine is pretty tame. There are others that have’m real thick.” Tell me about it…
“chevk vle sveils eliivs slevilse aselv eisev selkms v” There are some people here we just can’t understand. We try, bless their hearts, but they just can’t talk so others can understand them.
