Today I'm just going to try to keep up the writing momentum. I have a goal of getting the wip somewhere between 7-8k words. It's a little over 6k now, so that should be do-able... as long as nothing wild happens during the day to pull me away from what I need to be doing.
Now for your blogging pleasure...
Thirteen Things they teach you when you grow up in Louisiana.
1.) Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet stuck up in the air because they like to.
2.) Fixin'-to is one word, and is used as such: I'm fixin'-to go to the store. You wanna go?
3.) You need only three condiments in your house: Tony's, Tabasco, and ketchup.
4.) Ja'eat? is an actual phrase, and it means, "Did you eat already?"
5.)You carry jumper cables in your car... for your OWN car.
6.) The local newspapers cover national and international news on one page, but require 6 pages for local gossip and sports.
7.)It's not a shopping cart, it's a buggy.
8.)Rice and roux is the base for any meal.
9.) The first day of deer season is a national holiday. (Which can be very annoying for many'a housewife.)
10.) The first cool snap of the year (the first day below 70 degrees) is "good gumbo weather".
11.) Fried catfish is the other white meat.
12.)The security lights on the garage are meant to scare away possums and raccoons, not thieves. This also explains why there's a security system even though the front and backdoors always stay unlocked.
13.) All carbonated drinks are Coke, regardless of the flavor or brand. For example: What kind'a Coke you want? Dr. Pepper, Strawberry, Pepsi, Regular Coke...etc. Gotta be specific. *wink*
Tad-dah! There you have it, my second ever Thursday Thirteen. I can personally vouch for all those. *rofl* :P
Hope your day is a snazzy one! ^_^
