Things You’ll Never Hear Said in South Louisiana
I was chatting with a friend the other day about the weather in regards to how nice it has been lately. But we all know in a few days we'll be in the thick of summer.
The phrase that was uttered by my friend during our conversation that made me turn my head like a dog look at their goofy owner was: "It's not that humid outside today."
Yeah, words virtually never uttered in south Louisiana...ever!
That got me to thinking of things you just never hear in south Louisiana. With a lot of help from friends and listeners of 97.3 The Dawg, here's the running list.
- It's a dry heat.
