fried catfish: the other white meat

The Hater and I continue to be teased about our heritage from time to time. Off of the top of my head, here are some more common threads of tease-fodder:

Onced and twiced are words. Fixinto is one word.

It is not a shopping cart; it is a buggy. Get it right.

There is no such thing as "lunch." There is only dinner and then there is supper.

Iced tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're two. We do like tea with our sugar.

You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH them.

We measure distance in minutes. We are currently living about ten minutes from lots of different places.

100 degrees Fahrenheit is "a little warm." We know all four seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, still Summer and Christmas. We were taught to describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good pinto-bean weather.

A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola or pop . . . it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor. Example: "What kinda coke you want?" We currently have several different cokes in the fridge: Sun Drop, Mountain Dew, and Sprite.
