Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] missus_grace because it's late and it sounded fun.

Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup

ooh, baby, talk to me. :P

Hey, I'm from the PNW and I say y'all. And your first answer made me giggle hysterically.

I aim to please - :P

Seriously, the y'all thing comes up all the time. I had someone stop me at work and grill me on my state of origin because I have no southern accent and use y'all without any hipster inflection. So I tend to overexplain my use y'all - but in fairness, I'm totally right. English really needs a second person plural.

And as for the first answer? That's seriously what I thought when I read the question - no joke. I was all "that, my friend, is a misdemeanor mischief charge and I should know. I had three friends cited in high school on that exact charge for that exact act."

Thanks! I thought it seemed a kind of fun way to share a bit of my real life-ness with everyone here - plus, I love talking about y'all. It really needs to be an actual okay word.
