the south

so i am from the south
i remember arguing about it in my college days when my boyfriend and all his family were from south jersey and so i didn't want to be from the south (oh how we all want to fit in, never mind that southern jersey is country as hell but you know wharves) then there was the boom going on when everything was from the south so you wanted to be from the south..

DC/DMV has always been confused and we don't want to claim the south but we don't want to be northern either...just like we'll say DC before we say maryland when out of state because people will automatically think baltimore and goodness forbid DMV folks be associated with baltimore...its way more complicated than need be but hey it is what it is

yes we here in the DMV live below the mason dioxin line and we ARE from the south...
good thing is we are right here at the thing so i like to say we are a little southern metropolis...
meaning we technically are in the south and technically we sound country as hell but we are a little city and world of its own...

i had a whole bunch of witty things that i wanted to say, however i have the flu and an ear infection so i'lll just leave you with one of my favorite southern party starting songs

Yes indeed, the DMV is the South. When I moved here from NY in '91, I was heartbroken. Told my parents, and I quote, "You're ruining my life AND we moving to the South!! Just leave me here!". *LMAO* I've grown to love it here, but it took some getting used to.
