Butter Dish......Butter Fly!

       Hubby and I woke up this morning in 'talk' mode. :-) When we're like that conversations can go from A to Z!... Or for people who understand the Bible, from Adam to Armagedon! LOL We didn't go all the way to the end of the line this morning though. We just went as far as the southern United States! :-))
     We got into a conversation about the different 'wording' that southerners use for things. For instance, I said to hubby this morning: "I woke up with a 'crick' in my back." O_O And he jokingly said: "Well, you better call the police!" ^_^
      Then I had to correct him. "No, not a 'crook' (a thief) in my back!...a 'crick'!" LOL He assured me that he knew exactly what I was talking about. His mother, like me, is also from Georgia originally. ^_^ He was just trying to make a joke! ^_^ 
      That led to a conversation about why a 'crick' southern lingo (language) both 'a twisted or cramped place in the back that causes pain'...and...'a stream of water'! ^_^
     It also led to conversation about other southern expressions, like 'fixin to'. Example: "I'm 'fixin to' go to the store"...Or in other words: I'm about to...or I'm getting ready to...go to the store. :-]
      And it also led to the title of my blog today...about 'butter'! ^_^ Hubby said he was getting ready to go and fix 5 a.m.! And I said: "You 'butter' not!!" Ha! Ha!...Of course, in other English lingo this would be: "You 'better' not!"...but I'm from the southern state of Georgia, Y'all! ^_^ 'You butter understand!' ^_^
     Joking around, hubby said: "You butter 'dish' (distribute information) about that on your blog."...I said: "I sho (sure) butter!" LOL...So there you have it...on Pancake Sunday!...With a crick in my back, I'm fixin to do some  'butter' dish, share a cute item I found on Etsy....

     ...and then I 'butter' fly!! ^_^

        Isn't language grand!! ^_^ Have a good day, Everybody! :-)


Poetry, the gift of words,
that help you say whats in your heart;
that puts your thoughts of life together,
but pulls emotions all apart.

Poetry, your quiet friend,
that gives your voice a place to land;
that gives the things you'd  never say
a way to jump out from your hand.

Poetry, done to a beat,
a beat of words, said right in time,
without confusion of the music,
but just the rhythm and the rhyme.

Poetry, phrase harmony;
the way a noun and adverb meet;
the way they line up side-by-side,
and all Not needed they delete.

Poetry, the passing thoughts,
and all the others I hold dear,
of all the people and the places
that I've  written down right here.

Poetry, the gift of words,
and putting them together too;
Without the pen and paper
what in the world would my mind do?


  1. Here in the northern/middle U.S. it's a "creek" (a running stream) in my back!! Of course a "creek" (the stream) is not a "crick" it's a "CREEK!" Ha ha ha!!
    Chew on that awhile!!

    Have a great day and meeting my friend(s)!! :D

    1. Ha! Ha! Ha!...As I said, isn't the English language grand!! ^_^ ...But uhhhh....a 'creek' in the back sounds sorta like what the door does when it needs oiling! It 'creeks'! LOL....Do you need oiling, Bead?!!! ^_^

  2. Well, a "crick" in your back is better than a "cold" in your Chiro hubby cringes every time someone says that! Around these here parts we have a town called "Wooster"...many folks make it sound like "rooster" with a "W", but it's not pronounced that's more like "Wuster"..anyway, I'm up the "creek" without a paddle on this one!

    1. Ha! Ha! Ha!...Sorry Yaya Hubby! O_O I've said that many times too!! But that kind of cold is usually associated with an aching in your back due to freezing cold weather for an extended period of time! ^_^ And we don't say "a" cold in the back. We just say "I got cold in my back"! LOL...By the way, living in Massachusetts would be soooo fun for you! ^_^ We have a town near us spelled Worcester, but it's pronounced like this...

      ^_^ Your Wooster has nothing on us!! LOL
