Today's Topic:  

Write about whatever you'd like, but write using regional slang, your dialect, or in your accent.

Ugh.  It's the end of a long day and I just don't feel like doing this.  (Isn't that awful?)

One of the more common Kentucky-isms I've heard since moving here is "you'uns" - 2nd person plural pronoun.  As in:

Are you'uns going up to the fair this weekend?  Better get more air in that left rear tar (tire).  It's a-lookin' a little low.

Of course, there is always:

Ah'm tarred after pickin' backer all day.

The rest of the world may or may not recognize that as:  I'm tired after picking tobacco all day.


So, what are some of your -isms?m
