Here’s the recap:
2008 – Say “Yes” not “Yeah.”Â I realized that having a southern accent doesn’t mean I have to be sloppy with my speech. Â Because I heard my children saying “yeah” all the time when they were supposed to be saying “Yes Ma’am – Yes Sir ” made me crazy. Â So I decided to start with myself. Â It was honestly a tedious effort at first to put my teeth together and hiss the “essss” out. Â Much harder than the “eeuuhhhh” of “Yeeeaaauuuhhhh.”
2011 – Eat More Fried Chicken. Â I could write an entire book on what happened this year. Â I really love fried chicken, but because of a hereditary history of high cholesterol and a general fear of the bathroom scales, I NEVER ate it. Â Family reunions, church dinner on the grounds, tailgating, you name it – fried chicken was everywhere. Â I mean, this is SOUTH ALABAMA for crying out loud! Â Fried chicken is practically dripping from the trees!
You know it – THE NEXT DAY I needed them! Â AAGGHHHHH!!!
Perhaps a bowl of soup and grilled cheese sandwich may be all they get.
