24 Phrases Only Southerners Use…..
Someone once said that when you visit the South, you need a translator. It’s true, we do have a mouthful of sayings that only Southerners understand. However, if you’re from the South, you know that sometimes there’s just no other way to get your point across. If you’re tying to be nice, but you just can’t quite let it go, “bless your heart” is a go to. When you’ve met the girl of your dreams, chances are she is “pretty as a peach.” If you just heard your mama come home and you haven’t finished your chores, she will definitely be “madder than a wet hen.” Take a look at some of our favorite Southern sayings that we just couldn’t live without.

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
Rushing to get to the movies, my husband and I told the kids we had to leave “right now” at which point our teenage daughter headed for the bathroom to apply makeup. Her dad yelled for her to get in the car immediately, and headed for the garage grumbling. On the way to the multiplex my husband glanced in the rearview mirror and caught our teen applying lipstick and blush, which produced the predictable lecture. “Look at your mom,” he said. “She didn’t put on any makeup just to go sit in a dark movie theater.” From the back I heard, “Yeah, but Mom doesn’t need makeup.” My heart swelling with the compliment, I turned back to thank this sweet, wonderful daughter of mine just as she continued, “Nobody looks at her.”😳
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Coffee and cigarettes, that’s like the breakfast of champions.”
Answer: Blue in the Face!
“Blue in the Face” starred Harvey Keitel, Michael J. Fox and Lily Tomlin. Actor Jim Jarmusch, who plays a character named Bob (no last name), makes this funny, albeit incorrect statement while smoking a cigarette and drinking his morning coffee. He had been discussing why he loves cigarettes and is sitting around with a group of friend who are all sitting around doing the same thing. This part of the dialogue ends and jumps quickly to Paris in the springtime. Much of the dialogue in this feature was ad-libbed. All of the other options were filmed in the 1960s.
