    Has anybody brought up the word "ahma"?

    As in, "Ahma go upside yo' head, you don't shut up!"

    I'm pretty sure "ahma" is just slightly more immediate than "fixin' to".

    For me sayings are common as cornbread. Here in Texas we have enough sayings to cover allllll hell and half of Texas! We got more guts than you could hang on a fence. Actually Texans we are known for charging hell with a bucket of ice water. We like to think that hell is only two hoots and a holler away or just like most places in Texas if you gona hit the road you better grease your wagon a time or two. Also for none natives our weather can be hog killing weather. And yes in our restaurants you leave looking like a town dog or just fat as sassy.
    Overall we Texans are brave as the first man who ate an oyster....icon_wink.gif

    in my deepest drawl...

    xrichx saidDated a guy from Alabama. A few of my favorite/humorous words and sayings..

    - Buggy --> shopping cart
    - Bless your heart --> you're a moron
    - Toboggan --> wool beanie/cap
    - Soda --> pop


    LMAO I forgot buggy isn't a word to some ppl. I always ask for a buggy then I catch myself.

    The best one I remember was "Imma go cut a switch and whoop you!"
    Then they'd pull a slender limb off a tree to spank you with.

    Also "don't make me swat you!"
