Public Nuisance

Last night’s dismissal of Pickler reminded me of a story that occurred while I was living near her neighborhood, low many years ago.

I had been living in NC for about a year when I returned up here to visit with old friends. We were at a movie theater watching a flick. For the life of me I cannot remember which movie we were attending.

Our movie chatter went something like this:
Friend: Do you think you can come up for the housewarming party.
Wicked: I don’t know, I might could.
Friend: What did you just say?
Wicked: …..
Friend: WHAT THE HELL IS MIGHT COULD? YOU EITHER MIGHT OR YOU CAN, YOU CANNOT MIGHT COULD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wicked: In NC you can!

Right after that stellar come back, we both got kicked out of the theater for disturbing the other patrons.

From that point on, while I resided in NC, my friend would refer to me as Daisy Duke.

So I guess I am to understand that your vebal habits are different from your written habits. Do you say Y'All as well?

Do you have any idea what this will do to your reputaion ????

The only time speaking in
"southern slang" is apropriate is when speaking to another southener.

So I guess we should just start calling each other to exchange bad verbal habits

Dave: I never said I picked up the twang, the vocabulary yes. However, I can do a very good twang. I am able to imitate accents quite well. My reputation, such as it is, remain in tact.

Wicked H said...

I actually jumped off the couch and did a happy dance around the living room when they said that Pickles was going home...THANK GOD!!!

She might could've gone a few weeks ago and made me a whole lot happier.... :)
