Wordless Wednesday # 1 - Water, Hillbilly Style

Ok. It isn't too wordless. But here's the story.

This is a water tower in Florence, KY. It sits right on I75. Florence is right across the river from Cinci, OH. This particular water tower sits close to their mall.

When I was growing up, we took trips to central Tennessee every year. On our way, we passed through Florence. I would read this water tower every single time, not understanding what yall meant. When I grew a little older, I thought that the people in Florence were total morons because they didn't know how to spell Mall correctly.

It wasn't until I was a junior in college at the University of Kentucky did it finally dawn on me what the word really was.

LOL...I'm from cincinnati. It confused me too as a child. I always thought the people there must be stupid, because it should say YOU ALL. There was no such thing as ya'll in the grammar books I had at school. Every time I see it, it makes me cringe. Don't they know they really are not part of the South? I mean, really!
