MY SOUTHERN AUNT'S BEST IDIOMS
I spent the first eight years of my life being raised in the American South. I lost the accent but kept the good-natured hospitality. My southern aunt visits occasionally and these are the most amazing things she says.
- •"I'm as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs."
- •"Babygirl, your apartment is so small you gotta open the door to change your mind."
- •"That boy is so far behind he thinks he's in first place."
- •"Bless your heart."Translation: You're so fucking stupid.
