Never a Harsh Word

“Southern women are never guilty of saying anything lewd or crass. As long as we stretch out our words to three syllables or more, it all sounds just lovely…
“You could say shit but why would you when ’shee-y-it’ sounds so much better? Jesus, or ‘Jyee-suy-sus.’ And then we have damn or ‘daa-yam-muh.’
“Y’all think I’m on to something?”
(A little cocktail talk I picked up during my North Carolina vacation… Flying back to the City tomorrow evening…)
