Regional Dialect Meme/ My First VLOG

So I found this meme that I has been going around called the regional dialect meme. I first saw it on this girl's blog: Love Emma Lina

So i thought what a fun thing to do. And it will be my first Vlog! Woo Hoo. I roped my youngest daughter Mary into helping me too.


Words to pronounce:

Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

Questions to answer:

* What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?

* What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?

* What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?

* What do you call gym shoes?

* What do you say to address a group of people?

* What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?

* What do you call your grandparents?

* What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?

* What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?

* What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

That's pretty cute! Your daughter was a good sport to do it with you. Nice Southern accent, but not too strong if you ask me ;-)

I love regional dialect, though it can become confusing.

My favourite is Bless their Heart, which to us is What an Idiot! Must nicer in the south :)
