Yesterday, one of my students asked me whether I like the north or the south better.  I diplomatically explained that I like each for different reasons.  He stared at me for a moment, then with a look of determination said,

“Well, I know could NEVER live in the north.  They don’t have fried food up there!”


I had to chuckle, for just last week, BeachBoy ordered a meal at a local, family owned restaurant, and it came with fried green beans!  I’d never heard of such a thing!
