Things I've Learned Growing Up in the South Posted by: Aaron Stearns | 64 Comments
We loved growing up in the south. "Bless your Heart", "Sweet Tea", Football & family. A dear friend who is now a Southern Ex-patriate reflected on her sweet time of you and shared with us her list of "Things I Learned Growing Up in the South." Please enjoy & share.
- Sunday morning church is not optional.
- Tailgating is just as important as the game itself.
- If I didn't hear "Bless Your Heart" at least 5 times a week, something was amiss
- There is no such thing as a “mild summer.”
- An inch of ice is ten times worse than six inches of snow.
- Unsweet tea is not a valid choice.
- Mosquitos are a verifiable enemy.
- When the tornado sirens sound, it just got real.
- We loved our College Team, to a fault some would say.
- Salad is not supper.
- Grilled catfish is not a thing.
- Going Greek is a family affair.
- There is no such thing as "grilled" catfish.
- Everyone had a crazy relative who dabbled with a whiskey still.
- Everything, and we mean everything is monogrammed.
- You actually drive by and even sometimes visit cemeteries.
- Always carry and extra stick of lipstick in each purse
- Every kitchen had a wooden lazy susan
