The north south talk reminds me of one of my most embarrassing moments. Born and raised in PA. moved to CA when I was 20, then on to Mississippi. (Military wife for a bit.) my sister and her family came to visit for Christmas and we drove the block to the beach. We're talking about the "bubbas" down south. At the stop sign near my apartment, I proclaim "Look! There's one there!" Only to have my brother in law turn and wave! Oopsy. I was SOOO embarrassed. They got a good laugh.
