Southern Mamas have a way of saying what they mean – with a little twist.
I polled the gang at last month’s meeting of the
LAWDY Club (Lower Alabama Whine and Dine, Y’all) and here are the results
of advice their Mamas gave.
So here you go , Advice from a Southern Mama . . .
“Wear clean underwear in case you are in an accident.”
(I think that one may be bi-partisan across the Mason-Dixon Line)
“If you don’t want to hold it in your hand, don’t let it come out of your mouth.”
“Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes to the bone.”
“If you don’t stop that crying, I’ll give you
something to cry about!”
“Darlin’, what kind of Coke do you want?”
“Not all women are ladies.”
“I’m goin’ to yank a knot in your tail!”
“Stand completely still ’till he opens the door for you.”
and last but not least . . .
What did your Mama say to you?
