Friday Funny:

Songbird was babysitting for one of her regular families one morning.  When she came home she shared the following with me ...

Songbird:  "Oh, I can cook some eggs and toast for the children, that way you can get started on your paperwork earlier."

Mother:  "Alright, that would be great!"

Songbird proceeds to rummage around the kitchen then ...

Songbird:  "Mrs. Mother, where's the bacon grease?"

Mother:  "The what?"

Songbird:  "I'm going to fry some eggs for the children, where do you keep your bacon grease?"

Mother flashes Songbird a confused and horrified expression ...

Mother:  "That's alright ... I'll cook the breakfast."

Songbird absolutely could not believe what she witnessed next.  Mother poured vegetable oil into a pan and fried eggs for the children.

Later that day Songbird returned home:

Songbird: "Mom, how could anyone eat an egg fried in vegetable oil?  Why would someone even do that?"

Me:  "Honey, bacon grease is a southern ... these people don't eat like us."

Songbird:  "I suppose that's why they are all so skinny and sickly - they don't eat enough because their food doesn't taste good ... vegetable oil & eggs, GROSS!"

I've said it before and I'll say it again ... You can take a girl out of the south, but you can't take the south out of the girl.
