I am not mocking or hating on you, Tejas! I'm just posting about things that are different, surprising, confusing, amusing, or hilarious to me as a New Englander... or, as y'all prefer to call me, a Yankee.
PS: No seriously. I can't mock you because the word "y'all" is unconsciously in my thoughts... and now in my speech as well. Yes, it has happened: I say "y'all" on a regular basis.
