when my husband and I first got married, we were ridin' around down the backroads, and passed something dead and he said "smell the kyarn?". Like a true blonde city girl I said, "Kyarn? I dont smell any CORN...I smell somethin dead though! Ha! Ha! Then at this job I had, this girl would always ask me, "you need any HOPE doing anything?" and I'd always say no, til finally I said, "I wish you'd quit asking me if I need any hope! I go to church, and pray all the time! But I could use some HELP!"

I am from "up nort" as they say up there, and there are some pretty funny sayings up 'dere' too. However, I love a few down here that I don't think have been mentioned:
"I'm gonna wear you out!" - gonna spank a kid
"birth'n" - having a baby
"I don't care to" - which actually means 'yes'.(For example, if someone asks you: "Do you want to go into town with me?" You would say, "I don't care to go".)

Oh, and the funniest thing is when someone says..
"Bless his/her heart". Cuz you can say something bad, but as long as you say "Bless his/her heart" you are okay.
(For exapmle: "Oh lordy, his breath could gag a maggot, bless his heart.")

I have a sign at my house: "I ain't from the south, but I got here as quick as I could".
I love living down here!

When I first moved to Tenness...I had the toughest time understanding the "Tennessee language". I will never forget I was told to get out of the light. I looked like a deer in the headlight stare. What are you talking about? Come to find out I was staning in front of the TV and they could not see through me. Who would have ever guessed.
