I appear to be from all over. I wonder how I managed that?

I agree with the Tp-ing too. I only got a 60% but I guess they didn’t factor in Southern Louisiana, accents different here and through it has more in common with the South there are a few things like the cot-caught issue that make it different.

But damnit when the waitress asks me for a drink and I say Coke she better ask what kind!

...I usually go for Dr. Pepper.

89% Dixie. Lived in the midwest until I was 14, moved South. Southern took I guess!

My best friend and I both lived in a lovely TN city and we each worked for a a different northern based company. The company I worked for sent up and coming southerners to school to homogenize their language. The company my girlfriend worked for simply adopted “fixin to” once they heard it in a conference call :-).
This same girlfriend acquired a crowd of admirers at the Freepers Balls in DC during the 2004 inauguration. Under the influence of all that lovely alcohol her TN accent/dialect became very pronounced.

So scared taking this test! I want SO badly to be a real Texan now but wasn’t sure how I would fare!

I was happy enough with the basic test result:
70% Dixie.Well under the Mason-Dixon Line
(Could have been better, but OK, that’s OK.)

Getting at least that high encouraged me to take the more advance test where I then scored: 46% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom.

Am I torn between the two or might I be a work in progress?

Thanks for the tag re_nortex!

92% Dixie. Is General Lee your grandfather?!

I figure the 8% has something to do with the Yankee I married.

I replied first, 100% Dixie.

Dad’s family’s been in coastal NC longer than this country has been in existince......since the 1720’s. Mom was from the Cumberland Mountains in TN. I live in VA, courtesy of the USN (Retired).

The conversation should have properly concluded with your wife’s utterance of the facially submissive, but substantively dominant, exclamation: “Well, bless your heart”.

I grew up down in Louisiana in a community of Okie transplants sandwiched in between the cajuns in the south and the rednecks in the north. Moved to Nashville in 84.

28% Dixie. You are a dandy Yankee Doodle.

And they "din't" even ask about

"hover": (HUV-ver or HAWV-er)

"until" (un-TIL or in-TIL)

"whaddya call a knitted winter cap, maybe a bit elongated with pom-pom on the tip" (stocking cap, toboggan, or toque)

The correct! answer! Is! Toque ---pronounced like 2k or "Cuke."

It's especially a toque if it has fringes.

Extra-and-specially if you wear it to bed, my dear.

“Tp-ing” is Texan, not “wrapping.” No, you tp a house and you wrap a present.

You're either a youngun or a transplant. We wrapped houses deep in the heart of Texas in the early to mid 60s. I never even heard of TP'ing until I moved to California almost 10 years after I'd wrapped my last house.

You’re wrong on both counts.
