Yeah, keltin. I didn't know of the leaving by the "same" door superstition until I moved here in 1994. Our house has 5 outside doors, so a person could easily be put into a sorry mental state if they don't leave by the door they came in by.

Great stories JP! But, I've not heard of the "red boots". What is that?

Oh Lord, that one has made my life so much more difficult! I had never heard of it either, and we have 3 doors to the outside…….and DW patrols them!

Heck, I’m a bit superstitious at heart, and it seems when I hear a new one, suddenly I own it even though I know better!

When I was a kid it was "tonic" then it was "soda" or a soft drink. Never heard anyone call it pop. Pop was the first half of a word that ended in "corn"

If you ask for a coke around here, you expect Coca-Cola. Not Pepsi or anything else.

It was an icebox when I was a kid. Now it's the fridge.

I drive my SO crazy when we're in the kitchen and I say, "Let's go inside." meaning go into the living room. It works in reverse if we're in the living room and I want to go into the kitchen.

The fish keltin listed are simply not available in the north. It's not that we are not adventurous, we just never see them.

If we order tea,we expect it to be hot. Otherwise we order iced tea. It comes unsweetened.

My MIL would say "he is in the house" if we were in the kitchen and I would ask where my husband was..meaning the living room...when she made fresh bread it was called Lite Bread..(North Carolina)

When he was stationed in Jackssonville Florida the older men he hunted with had their own language..
My dawg is over younder in the grater ditch..when he asked what was the grater ditch.."you city boy! where the grater came through..(where they were working on the road) and then one said " That Jip over thar is mine." Paul asked why he called his dog a Jip..answer was "if we call her a B.... my wife would kill me" so they all called the female dogs a Jip.

I'm a Florida native, born and bred within 35 miles of where I now live and I have never heard most of what I've read here about the way Southern people talk.
