ye olde talk

my friend and i were talking about our grannies recently, comparing notes on adorable granny talk.  while my granny frequently said “Denelle, you’re a PANIC” (meaning i cracked her up) and her granny said something like “Whoopsadaisie” (Lindsay, was that right??)  we discovered that they BOTH liked to say “Fair to Midland” when asked how they were doing.  (Middlen’?  Midline?)

My granny also used to say “Whoah-Bill” when she was about to drop something, and answered the phone with a stretched out “Yyyello…”

what about the rest of you all?  what are some of the fun things your grannies used to say?

  1. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for novice blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
