yeller pants

Today was my second day of school.
I was a little over 10 minutes late.
Yes, I have a time/late problem.
Don't ask my hubs about it.
even though I am ALWAYS late,
I hate being late.
When I realized how late I was going to be,
I started bracing myself for walking into the classroom while the teacher was already talking,
and for the awkward stares I would receive from my new classmates.
Then I looked down.
I was wearing my mustard yellow pants,
which would be no big deal (on a normal day)..
but when you're going to be late for class,
and you want to sneak in unnoticed,
they're probably not the best choice.  
I walked into my classroom as quickly and as quietly as possible.
I didn't make eye contact with anyone,
so I didn't see any stares.
But as I sat down,
I heard someone say,
My lands, those are some YELLER pants.
Why thank you, kind classmate..
 for making sure the whole class knew I was late,
and that my pants were yeller.

In West Virginia, yellow is to yeller as tomato is to tomoto.
oh, and my lands is equivalent to OMG.

LOVE! =) Especially the translation, which I didn't need, but laughed at. =) We should team up sometime and talk about southernisms! =)

Ever heard of a scrawberra? That's under-educated southern for "strawberry" where I'm from! Haha! And no, I don't say scrawberra. I'm edjumacated. ;)
