5 a noble heritage

the gift southerner's receive with their mother's milk is not to push a family disagreement too far. they are all aware of old family histories of relatives who brooded on a minor insult for twenty years and then came to their cousin's door with a loaded shotgun and blew his head off.

true that. i do like to think that non-bastards are right more often though.

so hot.

oline said...

can one true that a "true that"? or would that just be too hot to handle?
