And He placed us in the south because SOUTHERN GIRLS NEED HUMIDITY!!!
We were in Phoenix, AZ last week and our skin cried. Our hands were cracked, our nails were brittle, our wrinkles were showing more than usual and our hair looked like a rats nest (my daddy's words). Our bodies are use to being surrounded by moisture! Our humidity rate, in Mississippi, is what 80%? We start to fall apart at anything below 50%. Yes, our hair may frizz and our makeup may run but girl, we need it, can't live without it, gotta have it all the time.
When ChaCha was young she asked our grandmother Gertie why southern girls were the most beautiful. Her reply, "Well Sweetie, all states don't have grits and humidity."
We are back in Mississippi and I'm never gonna complain about humidity again!!!! Well, not for a while anyway.
PS. We ate grits on the way home 'cause we needed all the southern therapy we could get!
PSS. Just had to add this note on 'Being Southern' from a beautiful friend, Stacy Guidry. I'm telling you I need me some southern. You go girl!
"Ok Sweetie, I'm fixing' to tell you something about being Southern. Being southern doesn't mean that I'm not educated. I may say "ain't" and "y'all" and call you "Sweetie" or "Honey" and I might bless a lot of hearts and I might even "piddle around". I'll greet you with a big "Hey" and a hug. All soda pop is "Coke" and I might refer to my grocery cart as a 'buggy' and by golly, that's ok. I'm polite and say "Ma'am" and "Sir". And if you hear a southern say "Oh heck no!!", you'ld better run!!!"
PSSS. Got anything to add to this 'Southern' blog? We would sure love to hear from Y'all!
Note from ChaCha: Our dad told us that sometimes when you take furniture from Mississippi to a dry state that it will fall apart. Something about the moisture making it swell and keeping the joints tight.....Guess we're kinda like that furniture (hopefully not swollen) but fallin' apart without our moisture.
