Taken from an email and posted here for my friends from the South... and those of you who wish you were... ;)
"Only a Southerner knows the difference between a hissie fit and a conniption fit, and that you don't HAVE them, you PITCH them."
Reminds me of my sweet grandmama who accused me of 'pitching' a hissie fit or two in my younger days.
She was wrong.
Sure, she was.
