I saw this video today and have to share it. Not all Southern women are the same but these ladies are saying a lot of the expressions I have heard from Louisiana to North Carolina. We don’t all talk like these women but most of us have used some of their expressions in our life. This and other videos of the same name were first shown on the Southern Women Channel. I just wanted to share them with you.
I fear I must be adamant in stating my demands. In this I am unshakeable. My initial sales price stands. I do not like this bargaining. I find it all a chore. I’d rather be off wandering. Business is a bore. And though I must admit that your demeanor is most affable, your offer is too little. In fact I find it laughable. It will do no good to counter offer. I’m set on the price that would reimburse me for leaving paradise.
I have no bottom offer. This is no power game. To nickel and to dime it is a practice I find lame.
The palm trees are all swaying, there’s hot water in the pool, and the more I think about it, I see that I’m a fool to leave this little Shangri-la. Where would I find its sequel? It’s clear that for the price I ask I could not find its equal! Here swinging in my hammock with a cocktail and my pup, I am so contented that my sales price just went up!!
Prompt words today were chore, affable, adamant and power.
Are you in my coterie or am I in thine? I’d find it much more stimulating if you were in mine. If I’m the leader of the pack, the one who’s picked to shine, I admit, my friend, that I would find it most divine.
When folks pulled out their cameras, I would stand in the center. At every social gathering, I’d be the first to enter. I’d be the first to order when our group went out to dine. I’d have prime place at table. I’d get to choose the wine.
It would become tradition that I would be the star. All the handsomest of men would eye me from afar. But after this conjecturing, of course I could be wrong. If I am in your coterie, I’d only tag along!
A few days ago I wrote a poem on my blog entitled “Black Friday.” This creative animated film by Steve Cutts so perfectly illustrates it that I had to share it with you. Really inventive and indicative of our modern world.
I hope I’ll be forgiven if I’m driven to impose and point out that the place that you have chosen for repose is on my bed, not yours, and on my freshly laundered clothes! You’ve drooled on my new-pressed jeans and snagged my finest hose and that’s my favorite blouse there beneath your dripping nose, and though you look most comfortable in that snuggling pose, I fear you and your boyfriend I simply must depose. Is it possible to move to your own bed, do you suppose?
