Brushing Up on Fun Texas Sayings
Before you head down to Texas for the big rally, you may want to consider brushing up on some fun Texas sayings! For starters, you may want to become familiar with the popular southern contraction—y’all. This is pronounced yaaallllll—not “you all”—and is used to refer to more than one person!
Also, if you want to order a soda or a pop while you are down there, then it is referred to as a Coke. Even if you want a Pepsi or a Sprite…it’s still a Coke. So when you say you want a Coke, the waitress will then ask you what kind of Coke you want. Got it? If you want tea, then be prepared for the sweetest most delectable liquid to ever pass your lips. If you want to sweeten it yourself, then you MUST ask for unsweetened…and be prepared to get some rather crazy looks.
If you are getting ready to do something, then you are fixin’ to do it…and if you are taking someone somewhere then you aren’t “taking them”—you are “carrying them”. So a proper phrase would be..”Hey, I’m fixin to go to the rally; do you want me to carry you?”
