More Southernisms

Standard

A few fun sayings I grew up with:

“You look rode hard and put up wet.”

“You can’t make silk out of a sow’s ear.”

“Beauty’s only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone.”

“She’s gotta face that would make a freight train take a dirt road.”

And from my brother to my nephew, “Boy, you look like you just combed your hair with a firecracker!”
