finding your inner Texan: the language
Though I won’t be able to afford my Texas road trip this summer, I’m still asking myself, what is that thing that makes Texas Texas and Texans Texans? My first step is talking in my Texas accent and using Texan phrases, but the only Texan phrase I can remember is ya’ll! So let’s get this thing interactive: post your favorite Southern and/or Texan phrase in the comments. Be sure to use it in a sentence so we all know what it means!
♦ If you’re having trouble thinking of something, remember the last time you watched football with friends. What were some of the things people said?
♦ Common things people say about Texas are also welcome, ie “don’t mess with …”, “Texas is so big that …”, or “As they say in Sugar Land …”.
