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.
43% — raised in the Southern Tier of NY State — the dark brown part of the economic map
Shoot - Think I was in my twenties when I found out ‘damn yankee’ is TWO words,
89% Dixie. Lived in the midwest until I was 14, moved South. Southern took I guess!
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!
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).

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.
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."
83% Dixie and I’m 60 miles north of the Ohio river in Indiana.
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.
