Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
How is it going? A couple of weekends ago I attended yet another summer party and that night as we were all sitting around the bonfire talking and laughing (and drinking) out of the blue one of our newest friends from Northern Cali made a comment about how often southern women say, "Bless their heart." She seemed confused about the phrase, never hearing it used in quite the way Southern women do. My British friends agreed. Us southern girls just giggled and the guys just shook their heads. We then took turns spouting southern wisdom, such as:
"My boss is dumb as dirt, bless his heart"
"My college roommate is as filthy as a pig, bless her heart."
"Why the UPS man is as busy as a one armed paper hanger, bless his heart."
"That coach is not the sharpest tool in the shed, bless his heart."
"You must be as hungry as a grasshopper in the winter, bless your heart."
You get the idea. In the south a LADY can say just about anything mean about someone and then end with "Bless their heart," flutter their eye lashes and pretend they meant no harm.
And usually it works..
Thats another reason I like True Blood so much, its so TRUE to the southern dialect. I'm pretty sure all the women in that show have said "Bless their hearts" at least once & in the right contexts, that and all the sexy men. I like that part a lot too.
Talk soon & Bless your heart-
