Ya don't say!... anymore...


Recommended Posts

Was thinking about old sayings and words we don't hear any longer that we may have heard our parents/grandparents use- local or otherwise...

 

a few I thought of:

 

davenport

 

kamode

 

latch-key kid

 

tin foil (except for hats)

My 85 yr old Grandma will ask my daughter

how her relationship with her "beau" is...

(daughter's 15 and just stares at Grammy!)

 

She also still asks me if anyone has "come a courtin'" lately...

makes me laugh, as she was born and raised here, not in the deep South!

 

She is also famous for seeing young girls dressed inappropriately

and saying "Does she work in a Brothel?"

 

Gotta love Gramma's :)

My grandma refered to a person as a Body, a body needs this or a body needs that and I have known many old people using the term put it in a poke instead of a bag.

Couldn't leave my aunts house without a "poke" of candy.


All things in life are temporary. If going well enjoy it, they will not last forever.

I was at my grandma's house having a conversation about men one day and she started talking about "laying down" with a guy. I couldn't help but laugh when I realized what she was talking about. Of course, this is coming from the same woman who was telling people she had to have an autopsy (rather than a biopsy) and around election time talked about the carcases. Gotta love grandma! lol

My daughter was standing in front of the davenport (aka sofa) the other day, between yours truly and the TV, while engrossed in text messaging.  I told her that "she made a better door than a window" and received a blank stare in response.
