The truth and nothing but the truth, sort of.
We often like to think of ourselves as individuals who form our own style and persona, but actually our personality is made up of many things. Although we do create some specific characteristics which are truly our own, we also collect some of these from family and friends. We are not born with our dialect or our love for a certain sports team, we grow into these with help from family and peers. One of the most noted characteristics is our taste for certain types of foods. If you were lucky enough to be born in the south, well God provided you with not only the most beautiful part of the country to live in, but some of the best food to enjoy while you were growing up. Southern living can only be described as heaven on earth. We love God, our families, our friends, our food, and our abilitiy to tell a story like nowhere else on earth. The part we find most enjoyable is watching people figure out what parts of our tales are true and what parts are absolutely false. It’s easy with some but impossible with others. We tell fishing stories, drinking stories, hunting stories and stories of lost loves. But we never reveal which parts are stretched out.
