Bama Attitude

What is Bama attitude? I was reading a commentary about people from Texas, and how they had a different kind of attitude.  So I paused and thought over Bama folks, and realized that they generally have a different kind of attitude.

Bama attitude is where you are going to do the right thing....even though most folks wouldn't do it.

Bama attitude is where you shop for the best price....not necessarily the best product.

Bama attitude is where you really don't care how the front yard looks.

Bama attitude is where you might profess to being a Baptist but you are secretly sipping whiskey on Saturday night and pumping breath-mints on Sunday morning.

Bama attitude is where your dog is awful bad sick and you are rushing him to the vet...while the wife has a broken leg on the old porch that you said you'd fix but haven't.

Bama attitude is where you have three shotguns in the house...at strategic points.

Bama attitude is where the only two door vehicle you ever own...is a pick-up.

Bama attitude is where SEC football rules from September to December.

Bama attitude is where blood kin weigh more on your mind than wife's kin.

Bama attitude is where you'd pay $1000 for a champion beagle but wouldn't spend more than $400 for your wife's new dishwasher.

Bama attitude is where you order the brand new $35k GM "haul-ass" wonder-truck...with satellite radio...but never subscribe to the services.

Bama attitude is where you know the twelve routes to the county line where ice cold alcoholic beverages can be sold and thus avoid the local law when driving back.

Bama attitude is where you don't know anyone who is gay or bi-sexual...nor do you ever want to know one of that variety.

Bama attitude is where Coach Bear walks upon water and you sip only ice cold Coke, lemonade,  or freshly brewed tea. 

Bama attitude is where you tell everyone that you will vote straight democratic ticket, and walk in to vote for straight Republican.

Bama attitude is where you you personally know the fella at the home depot nail department by first name basis and knows where he goes to church.

Bama attitude is where you consider a trip to the Tunica casino as a trip to paradise but never admit you went when friends at the church ask.

Bama attitude is where your neighbor is awful laid up and sick, and you round up six guys to do all his farm work for a month...and never accept a word of thanks or cash payment.

Bama attitude is where some local guy got bad off sick.....has no insurance...and you hold a "singing" where folks drop in $15k in one evening for his hospital costs.

Bama attitude is where you encourage the wife to dress like a tramp in the bedroom but would never want her showing any cleavage shown in public.

Bama attitude is where your septic tank has breached a hole or two, but you know this guy named Larry who does this replacement work real quick and for half the price most folks pay.

Bama attitude is that you really don't need any of that bottled water...just drink straight from the tap.

Finally...Bama attitude is where you are damn happy right where you are and really don't have a hankering to move to Austin or St. Louis.
