Spiffing y'all up, one typo at a time
Hey, y’all. There’s a nasty rumor out there that Southerners aren’t as smart or as well-educated as the rest of y’all. It’s time to put an end to that. I hope to redeem the South and renew our image, and along the way I want to share with you some of the things that are dearest to my heart: impeccable grammar, the South and refreshing adult beverages.
I’m an editor AND a writer, smart, sassy AND Southern, bold but not brazen. I love pretty things, good manners, baseball AND basketball. It seems all a bit contradictory . . . and it is the essence of what I’m all about. One of my all-time favorite quotes, author unknown, is:
“The Southern woman is required to be sweet, bitchy, frigid, passionate, witty and scatterbrained all at the same time. Her problem lies in the fact that she succeeds.”
Here’s to success! I’m The Grammar Belle. Nice to meet ya. Stop by anytime. And next time you might want to bring along a glass of champagne. Or at least a sweet tea.
