What is more Southern than Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Icing and Fresh Strawberries?
The War Between The States, also called The Civil War, ended in 1865. My Dad's Grandfather died at Shiloh. You might say I was raised in Dixie and no one in my family ever forgot The War. When I was 17, I dated a boy from Connecticut and my grand mother had a hissy fit . That is Southern Talk for very upset.
In 1985 I married a Yankee from Pennsylvania. We have over the last 25 years had many an argument over sayings and words. some of you will remember the Rock, Stone, Pebble post from Nov 09.
I say the road is Blacktop, he says it is Macadam
I say the bug is a Doodle Bug or Roly Poly, he says it is a Pill Bug
I say I have a stitch in my side when I run (if I run, ha ha) he says he has a sticker in his side.
A sticker to me is a little piece of something in my foot that daddy had to dig out because I would not wear my shoes.
"Are you a Rebel or a Yankee Test" (take if and see what you are if you dare) if you are from another country, take it any way and see what it says about you. let me know what you are. Note: I also took The Advanced Test.
"you are 96 % Dixie Rebel. Is General Lee your grandfather?"
Bobs test said
"you are 17% Dixie Rebel. Wow! you are a duke of Yankdom."
this means I am rubbing off on him and he is now only 83 % Yankee! it took 25 years to do that, so how many years will it take to make him a Dixie Rebel? you do the math.
