Tonight was Open House at the school and I caught myself saying something I never, ever, ever thought I would say. It was kind of like word vomit. But I'm not sure.
Many of the teachers, students, and parents at my school are from the South (and yes, I do think it needs to be capitalized), and as such have a wide array of accents. I hear very refined drawls to very severe twangs.
I guess talking to so many different Southerners all at once got me going.
As I was discussing with a parent where the best place to seat her child would be, I said:
"I might could put him over there."
Really? I don't even now how to might-could something!!!
