How funny! We have had this conversation, in reverse. My mom was born in Illinois and raised (since age 7) in El Cajon, California (pronounced el ca-hone, btw). She and I have always said "pop" but my daughter (influenced by her friends) calls it soda. Like my mom always said, if you ever asked her to buy you some soda at the store you were going to get a box that said Arm & Hammer on it.

LOL! I learned the exact same lessons myself! Seems our parents read the same child rearing books.

But I’ve never heard of “campused” before. That’s a new one on me!

What a small world! My wife grew up on the El Cajon/Lakeside border. I met her while stationed at Coranado Island (North Island Naval Air Station) while I was in the Navy. I lived in Sand Diego, on Coranado Island, in Santee, Lakeside, and El Cajon while there (I was in for ten years and nine of them were in that area).

I've never had to "open a can" on someone. I am old enough to remember the song about an "Attitude Adjustment", by Hank Jr.

My dad was Navy, but I always got "grounded". And I got grounded A LOT!

I've never had to "cut my own switch". I had a healthy respect for my mother's wooden spoon. My little brother (17 years younger than I am) broke that spoon over his knee when he was 3. That's when my Mom started telling me to "go cut a switch for Zac". After I moved out, he had to cut his own!

Man, there's only one High's left? Come on over to this part of the country. I'll introduce you to the joy of "Braum's".

That's another thing I remember about MI. There were several ice cream shops around, some Baskin-Robbins, and a bunch of mom-and-pop places, and they all charged about twice what I would expect to pay down here at a Braum's. I guess the big guys can afford to sell cheap.

Another thing, is all the ice cream places closed up shop sometime in November, and wouldn't open up until Spring.

Also, the test mentioned a Drive-Thru Liquor Store! What the heck is that? I want one!!!! Where are those located?
86% Dixie. Do you still use Confederate money?

We have them all over the place in Texas. There is one up the street from us it is called the Beer Barn. It has beer, cigarettes, wine and coolers and snacks, that's it. Drive in, tell them what you want, they carry it to you, you pay, drive off.

BTW, it's freezer, fridge and water hose here too.

DH drives me nuts with some of his words. 2 in particular are battery and pecan.
I pronounce batteree and pecon, he pronounces battree and peecan. We were both raised within 2 miles of each other. He is more backwoods than I am though. LOL How do yall say these?

I’m with you texasgirl, it’s bat-uh-ree for battery and puh-con for pecan.

So, the drive in stores are down in Texas then? Ok, time for a road trip!!

Oh, and do Texans really call armadillos “speed bumps”?

Unfortunately, most do. What is really sad, too many people will get the ones that are not total road kill and put them on their backs and put beer bottles on them to look as though they are drinking while lying there on the side of the road.

Wow, that’s worse than cow tipping!
