"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

The kids and I had a great discussion about the ides until David disappeared and E begged me to stop when I pulled up the Julian Calendar and started pointing out the fasti days and the nefasti days, the Kalendae, the nundinae, etc. Some days my Latin background just overflows and runs amok.
