The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    True southerner

    Well, It's Settled! I now know that I an a TRUE Southerner! LOL

    Only a true Southerner knows the difference between a hissie fit and a conniption, and that you don't "HAVE" them, -- you "PITCH" them.

    Only a true Southerner knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens, peas, beans, etc. make up "a mess".

    Only a true Southerner can show or point out to you the general direction of "yonder".

    Only a true Southerner knows exactly how long "directly" is - as in: "Going to town, be back directly."

    Even true Southern babies know that "Gimme some sugar" is not a request for the white, granular sweet substance that sits in a pretty little bowl on the middle of the table.

    All true Southerners know exactly when "by and by" is. They might not use the term, but they know the concept well.

    Only a true Southerner knows instinctively that the best gesture of solace for a neighbor who's got trouble is a plate of hot fried chicken and a big bowl of cold potato salad. (If the neighbor's trouble is a real crisis, they also know to add a large banana puddin'!)

    Only true Southerners grow up knowing the difference between "right near" and "a right far piece." They also know that "just down the road" can be 1 mile or 20.

    Only a true Southerner both knows and understands the difference between a redneck, a good ol' boy, and po' white trash.

    No true Southerner would ever assume that the car with the flashing turn signal is actually going to make a turn.

    A true Southerner knows that "fixin'" can be used as a noun, a verb, or an adverb.

    Only a true Southerner knows that the term "booger" is a descriptive term, as in "that ol' booger", or something that jumps out at you in the dark and scares you senseless.

    Only true Southerners make friends while standing in lines. We don't do "queues", we do "lines"; and when we're "in line", we talk to everybody!

    Put 100 true Southerners in a room and half of them will discover they're related, regardless of race, even if only by marriage.

    True Southerners never refer to one person as "ya'll."

    True Southerners know grits come from corn and how to eat them.

    Every true Southerner knows tomatoes with eggs, bacon, grits, and coffee are perfectly wonderful; that redeye gravy is also a breakfast food; and that fried green tomatoes are not a breakfast food.

    When you hear someone say, "Well, I caught myself lookin' ... ," you know you are in the presence of a genuine Southerner!

    Only true Southerners say "sweet tea" and "sweet milk." Sweet tea indicates the need for sugar and lots of it - we do not like our tea unsweetened. "Sweet milk" means you don't want buttermilk.

    And a true Southerner knows you don't scream obscenities at little old ladies who drive 30 MPH on the freeway. You just say, "Bless her heart" and go your own way.

    good post dixie.

    they obcenitites are saved for yankees and other out of towner who drive 30 in the fast lane on all major highways that don't realize they are driving 30 in a 55 and won't move.

    i had a girlfriend from chicago once who loved they way i talk. fixin was her favorite. she asked what it meant and i told her it was slang for about to do something. i'm fixin to go to work, is an example. plus she loved my accent. most non southern american woman do.

    My brother's girlfriend had 2 of her cousins (both from up North) come down to visit. We all went to the movies & they couldnt stop laughing at the way we talk.

    I'm like Hercules, they really liked "fixin" - I never really thought bout it until they commented on it. They also liked how we combine 3 or 4 words into one like : "you want to" as "youonto" They cracked up when I said "a'aight". They also brought to my attention that we never use the "g". For example : smimmin, fishin, huntin, & cookin.

    I can relate to everything on that list. LOL, actually I think I read that as a forward on my e-mail a coupla weeks ago.

    I love where I live - the South, wouldn't have it any other way. You can actually take a pi$$ in your backyard without everyone hollerin "indecent exposure." But one bad thing bad livin in a small town - when you do something EVERYONE knows.

    I was talking to my brother-in-law the other day about people's migratory patterns (ie. northerners moving south, etc) and foundit interesting that when people move, it is generally north to south, or even south to north. Rarely do you find someone moving from California to south Carolina, or vice versa.

    I've lived in North Carolina for the past 18 years, and couldn't see myself living anywhere else. The thought of moving out of the south (almost had to do it last may) depresses me. People love living here. I've got nothing against people from the north, but I wish that they wouldn't bring their big city attitudes with them when they move here, and expect us to change. </soapbox>

    Oh yeah, there's just something about the taste of Busch light, and North Carolina barbecue that just gets to you.

    Well, as much as I hate to say it, the words "fixin'ta," "over yonder," and "usedtacould" are part of my conversational vocabulary. I do use the word "booger" as a descriptive noun for certain things. My cabinet does contain grits.

    Adding the "g" onto words just ruins them, I don't like saying the g either, people at school from chicago get on me for saying ceilin, and fishin and whatnot.

    I live in IL and somehow the people where we live have a southern accent, but I don't really do any of the typical southern things, and I don't say yonder and usedtacould, lol.

    Although I do like to use the word usedtacould just to mess with people.

    As soon as I get my act together I plan on moving to the south. I've had it with Kalifornia and the 5th columnists who run this shitheap of a state.

    lol, That's so true. I grew up in Sacramento and moved to New Mexico about 9 years ago. I took a trip back to Cali last summer and it was a DUMP. Now I'm hearing about how the state is broke, taxes are high and it is infested with homeless people and drug addicts. I would get out of there as soon as possible if I where you.

    Hey Niel, did yuou know that if you wander into San Francisco and declare yourself an emergency case, they'll hand you up to 700 bucks? Oh yeah, unemployment benefits are up to 333 dollars a week.

    THATS MORE THAN I MAKE AT MY ******* JOB

    They're trying to make lockback knives illegal(even for cops),and they just awarded 4.5 million dollars to an Earth First! activist who blew up his car by mistake while on his way to deliver a bomb to the police department.


    Yeah. Visit the sunny People's Republic of Kalifornia.
