I spent most of this beautiful Autumn day indoors attending an educational session so that I can satisfy the Boards of Pharmacy in the two states where I am licensed to practice, West Virginia and South Carolina. Sometimes continuing education seminars can be very dry and tedious, especially when the sun is shining and there are a million other things that one could be doing in The Land of Palm Trees; insert riding a bike around town, walking on the beach, fishing, playing golf, etc.
During today's session, in a successful attempt to add some levity and energy to what could be an energy zapping afternoon, the moderator presented a couple of slides containing southern slang medical terminology. It accomplished it's intended purpose, and it got me thinking about how we have begun to learn an entirely new dialect, now that we have been coastal southerners for five years or in other words, were a fixin' to have lived heh nearabout five years. Y'all need to carry y'allself down heh where y'all can up the window in your bedroom at night before ya cut the light.
Thought y'all might enjoy this humorous look at medical terminology, Southern Style.
