Southern Grandparents’ Sayings That Deserve a Comeback Part 2.
“It’s always darkest before the dawn.”
Translation: Your situation looks the absolute worst right before it gets better.
“I wish I had some ear bobs/ear screws to match this necklace.”
Translation: Ear bobs/ear screws = earrings
“I’ve got some Kleenex in my pocketbook if you need one.”
Translation: Pocketbook = purse
“I’m just give out.”
Translation: I’m exhausted.
“I’ve got a hitch in my get-along.”/”I’ve got a hitch in my giddy-up.”
Translation: I’ve pulled a muscle/my arthritis is flaring up. Or, I’m moving slowly.
“Let’s go loaferin’ this morning.”
Translation: Let’s ramble about with no particular destination in mind and no schedule to keep.
“Y’all stay and eat. We’ve got a gracious plenty.”
Translation: Memaw cooked so much that she’ll run out of kinfolks
before she runs out of fried chicken.
“Hitch your wagon to a star, honey!”
Translation: Go for it! Whatever your “it” might be.
“You’re not holding your mouth right.”
Translation: It’s sort of “you’re not concentrating, you’re not watching your form,
and you’re not determined enough” all rolled into one. Southern men, especially,
use this one when instructing children on casting a line, swinging a bat, etc. Bless your heart.
“You children go sit at the little table—the big table’s full.”
Translation: The “children” are all pushing 40, but as long as the senior relatives
are still with us, those whippersnappers can just hightail it to the living room.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT WEEKEND! people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
In my sociology class, we were instructed to write down answers
to some questions the teacher was asking. “Next question,” announced
the instructor. “How would you like to be seen by the opposite sex?”
I was thinking about my answer when the young woman next to
me turned and asked, “How do you spell ‘intellectual?'”😳

“Withnail & I” (1987) follows Withnail (Richard E. Grant) and Marwood (Paul McGann) leaving their squalid London flat on a trip to the countryside. The two unemployed actors are nearly always drinking as you can see by the quote; “We want the finest wines available to humanity. And we want them here, and we want them now!”.
