G.R.I.T. = Girls Raised In Texas

Someone once noted that a Texan can get away with the most awful kind of insult just as long as it's prefaced with the words, "Bless her heart" or "Bless his heart." As in, "Bless his heart, if they put his brain on the head of a pin, it'd roll around like a BB on a 6-lane highway."

I was thinking about this the other day when a friend was telling about her new transplanted northern friend who was upset because her toddler is just beginning to talk and he has a Texas accent. My friend, who is very kind and, bless her heart, cannot do a thing about those thighs of hers, was justifiably miffed about this. After all, this woman had CHOSEN to move to Texas a couple of years ago. "Can you believe it?" said her friend, "A child of mine is going to be "taaaallllkkin liiiike thiiiissss."

Now, don't get me wrong. Some of my dearest friends are from the North, bless their hearts. I welcome their perspective, their friendships, and their recipes for authentic Northern Italian food. I've even gotten past their endless complaints that you can't find good bread down here because the heathens, bless their hearts, don't like cornbread or sour dough biscuits!

I have a friend from Bawston, bless her heart, who thinks it's hilarious when I say I've got to "carry" my daughter to the doctor or "cut off" the light. She also gets a giggle every time I am "fixin" to do something. And, bless their hearts, they don't even know where "over yonder" is, or what "I reckon" means! My personal favorite was my aunt, saying, "Bless her heart, she cain't help being ugly, but she could'uh stayed home."

Texas girls know bad manners when they see them:

1. Drinking straight out of a can.
2. Not sending thank you notes.
3. Velvet after February.
4. White shoes before Memorial Day or after Labor Day.
5. Wearing jeans that aren't starched.
6. When setting the table, fold the napkin, even if paper.

Texas girls always say:

1. Yes ma'am.
2. Yes sir.
3. Please.
4. Thank you.

Texas girls have a distinct way with fond expressions:

1. "Yawl come back."
2. "Well, bless yer harrt."
3. "Drop by when ya can."
4. "How's yer mama?"
5. "Love yer hair."

Texas girls know their three R's:

1. Rich
2. Richer
3. Richest

Texas girls know everybody's first name:

1. Hunny
2. Darlin'
3. Sughar

Texas girls know the movies that speak to their hearts:

1. "Gone With the Wind"
2. "Fried Green Tomatoes"
3. "Driving Miss Daisy"
4. "Steel Magnolias"

Texas girls know the three deadly sins:

1. Bad hair
2. Bad manners
3. Bad dates

Now you run along, Shuger, and send this to ANY females aspiring to be GRITS -- even the northern ones, "Bless Their Hearts".

"Just because you move to Texas it does not make you a Texan. After all, if a cat had kittens and moved them to the oven, that wouldn't make them biscuits."

That's my biggest pet peeve. Yankees that move down here voluntarily and then complain about and critique our ways.... You're very welcome to go back where you came from

I'm sorry, you must mean "with all due respect", not "bless his/her heart"

Ricky: With all due respect, Mr. Dennit, I had no idea you'd gotten experimental surgery to have your balls removed.
Mr. Dennit: What did you just say to me?
Ricky: What? I said it with all due respect!
Mr. Dennit: Just because you say that doesn't mean you get to say whatever you want to me!
Ricky: Yes, it does!
Mr. Dennit: No, it doesn't!
Ricky: It's in the Geneva Conventions, look it up!
