Blog Prompt – What is the best reason for learning another language?
For me, I have a really hard time with English. Much less trying to learn a foreign language.
But, I guess speaking Redneck is a second language for me. I’m a country girl and if you know many people from the country, you find out quickly how we butcher the English language. I defiantly put more than 1 or 2 syllables on a word that really shouldn’t be there.
Like the word dog. I drag it out to dawwwgggg.
My mom use to say, “Were you raised in a barn.” Cause our manners weren’t right.
If something is really good to eat, I say, “That’ll make you slap yer momma.” But you are only allowed to say that if the meal is REALLY good.
I’m “fixin to” is a saying I use a lot. I’m fixin to do this. I’m fixin to make supper.
Oh, and I do know a little sign language. I use to bowl with a deaf woman and she taught us many signs. Mainly all the bad words.
Have a great day,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
