I say "come in here" or "do you need me to come in there?" Everywhere is in. My hubby says out. "Can you come out here?" He's the only person who says that maybe? I would say it if I were actually outside, but he says it from one room to another.
I say "leave it alone." I had a friend from PA who said "Let it alone." And she used both of those words opposite from how I used them.
My family of origin says "Has the mail gone?" guess we're weird.
I call pop, pop. Unlike some people in my family who are traitors to their heritage. My hubby is from FL and calls it all Coke and my kids call it soda. Don't know where they got that. Must have been their traitorous aunt.
Well if someone was pulling my hair, I would say, "Cut it out or I'll knock your block off!" But of the two options, I would say let it go. Again, my PA friend would say "leave it go"
I grew up with dishrags, but I am a traitor to my heritage and now I use dishcloths.
I wash my clothes even though my family of origin warshes theirs. I'm a little high falutin' I guess.
The last meal is dinner and the middle is lunch. Unless it's Sunday, then lunch might be dinner. And Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner are always at noon. I like the term supper though. I'm going to try to use that more.
Michelle asked about trash. I call it trash or garbage. Trash mostly I guess.
People are so transient these days. CO has people from all over the place, so it's easy to pick up different ways of saying things. I used to say "you guys", always. But after so many southerners have come through my life, I sometimes catch myself saying "you all." I don't drag it together for the real "Ya'll" but still it's enough to make me feel traitorous.
