Y'know, there isn't enough "I miss James" atmosphere here. That makes baby Jamesy sad.
Aren't you ready to come home yet, James?
*looks for some 'I Miss the Separatists' atmosphere on the Rhode Squadron boards*
Home is where the heart is.
And my heart is with Sara...
So maybe Sara needs to move down here...
Hey, my mother-in-law is in Mass...doesn't mean I'm there (as hard as she's tried).
How about we make a compromise? I say Maryland sounds good..!
And I thought your mum in law was in RI...
Now you've got me all confusled!
DC! There you go...
Husband's stepfather's relatives are in Rhode Island.
Okay, I was trying to draw a little mental picture of how that all worked and it so did not work for the first moment. Then again, I am tired..
How about the coast?
*casts vote for a coast far enough South to have grits, livermush and country ham*
Let's show James what he's missing...
You know you're from North Carolina if...
You've eaten at all of the following restaurants: Waffle House, Dairy Queen and Krispy Kreme
The local paper covers national and international headlines on one page but requires 6 pages for sports.
Your school classes have been canceled because of "the cold."
Your school classes have been canceled because of "the heat."
You've ridden the school bus for an hour each way (Mecklenburg County, two hours).
You measure distance in minutes. (Is there any other way)?
Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway.
"Vacation" means going to the beach or to the mountains.
You've seen all the biggest bands at the county fair ten years after they were popular.
You know several people who have hit a deer. (at least four or five)
You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
Stores don't have bags; they have sacks (or "pokes" if you're from Johnston or Cleveland County...)
You've seen people wear bib overalls to a funeral.
You've seen a car running in the parking lot at the store with no one in it no matter what time of the year.
You've used "fix" as an adverb. Example: "I'm fixing to go to the store."
You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
You think of the major four food groups as BBQ, sweet tea, biscuits, and Jell-O with marshmallows.
You carry jumper cables in your car.
You know what "cow tipping" and "snipe hunting" are (and have probably taken part in one or both activities).
You think that a Coke is a "Coke," not a "soda," and for goodness sake, never "pop". (This is important)
You find 90 degrees Fahrenheit "a little warm."
You know four seasons: "Almost Summer," "Summer," "Still Summer," and "Christmas."
You know which part of the state other North Carolinians are from as soon as they open their mouth.
Where's the stuff about: saying y'all, gander, yonder?
Oh dear, I really am a redneck....
And I say, how about the RI coast?
Last time I was on the RI coast, I got bitten by black flies...
Yeah, those buggers are rather nasty!
