"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

Fact: It is impossible to read a David Sedaris essay out loud without laughing.
After dinner, we decided to play a game of sorts.
The players: Spencer and me.
The rules: Read a David Sedaris essay out loud, and try not to laugh.
Outcome: We failed...miserably.
Go ahead, I dare you: try to read this one out loud and see if you can do it without laughing.
