Okay, I do have something to mouth off about. And, to add a little more of the aforementioned southern belle, Texas slang to this post– it just “cooks my biscuits” or “burns my — well — my butt!”
I’m online, minding my business. Reading the posts of my Xanga friends, answering a few emails and doing absolutely nothing to solicit anything from any of the nuts that obviously hand out online as well.
No, I do not have a picture. No, I do not want to share it with you and no, if I don’t know you, I don’t want to chat — especially if, instead of hello I get “what do you look like.” Let’s see, I weigh 396 pounds, I’m bald, missing two of my front teeth and have a big, ugly brown mole on the end of my nose. hmmm…wanna chat now?? LOL
So now, with that off my chest … back to my original post:
Do you ever listen to yourself talk sometimes? I get comments all the time on my supposed Texas accent… I don’t think it’s quite as bad as some say, but listening to my daughter from time to time, I wonder. She can make a one-syllable word stretch out for days. She has the “Southern Belle” routine down!
Never mind the fact that I may “drawl” a little when I talk or use “y’all” a little too frequently, but I have started listening to some of the things that come out of my mouth. Okay, someone tell me “fixin to” is a proper verb? I think I caught myself “fixin to do something” at work a dozen times today. Good grief, I think I do sound like a hick!! I think I’ll just chalk it up to my southern charm. I have decided I may need to hang my degree on the wall to remind myself that yes I do know proper English!! LOL
But for now, I’m fixin to go finish some housework. I’m still fighting that neverending battle. I hope all y’all (that’s more than one y’all) have a great evening. I’m too tired to come up with anything else to write about.
And, I guess it’s time for another picture of the kiddos:
