After a rather enlightening afternoon with the Moms in my "Building Better Moms" group, I thought I should clear up a few things. I love you all, I am so glad that I am getting to know you, but ladies, you are oh so wrong.
First of all, this is a soda, not a pop. And really, if you want to get technical, it's coke. If you ask someone what they would like to drink and they say, "Coke," you then ask, "Which kind? We have Sprite, Diet Coke, Mountain Dew, etc.." But you can say soda and people will know what you mean. But it is not pop!
Next, this is the smocked dress I have told you all so much about. I know you don't understand why we insist in making our daughters wear these until they are 5, but we do. Hey, at least I wasn't planning on dressing my son in these. Some boys in the south wear these as well. I do have some limits.
We do not all have double names. But you're right, a lot of us do. In fact, the quarterback of our beloved Crimson Tide was indeed a double namer.
And finally, I have never ever ever in my whole life called a toboggan a stocking cap. I am glad you all told me this because I would have looked like a fool next winter. And I am going to give you guys the edge on this one, because really, we didn't need these in Alabama. We only wore them when we pretended like it was cold or when we went on ski trips out west.
I will say though that I think the name stocking cap is funny. It reminds me of my grandmother who used to curl up her hair with bobby pins after washing it and then put a pair of panty hose on top of her head for the night to hold the curls in place. At least she didn't have a double name.
The ghosts that haunt us
