Time for another lesson in Do You Speak Texan
Y’all know I’m a real down to hear Texan. My sign says I wasn’t born here but I got here as fast as I could. One of the things I like the most is the unique jargon that is truly Texan, so today I’m going to share a little more with you.
You might be a Texan if you use the phrase “Fixin to” daily.
You do want a Texan to say “You’re cute as a possum…(A word of warning here: This is not to be used by a male addressing a male. Well, perhaps some of you could…
Real Texans do not use the word “summer” as a verb.
You don’t want a Texan to say “Youj’re dumber than dirt.”
You do want a Texan to say “You’re Wolverine mean.” (This is actually a compliment…Usually.)
You don’t want a Texan to say “You don’t know whether to scratch your watcj or wibd yiur butt.”
You do want a Texan to say “You’re tough as an old boot.”
Most words are accented in the first syllable, as follows:
KAYuff (a baby bovine)
SHEoot (to fire a gun)
WAYell (a hole dug for drilling)
That’s it for today’s lesson but stay tuned for more.
And here’s where you can find me when I’m not hanging out at Wild Wicked Cowboys:
