The flight attendent calls total strangers "darlin";
You get to explain to a visitor how to eat grits;
You are a part of a serious group discussion about the fine points of using the phrase "Yes Maam";
People use the possessive form of "y'all" - as in "Y'all's supper is gettin cold";
The church you are teaching in was once pastored by the poet laureate of the Confederacy;
The waiting areas in the airport are filled with rocking chairs.
You know that you are a former southerner who has lost touch by living too long in Colorado when you:
Point to the small bug hovering by your outdoor restaurant table and exclaim:
"Hey! That's a mosquito!"
