Speak Country

Student: Miss! I want to learn to speak Country.

Me: That is not a real language.

Student: I know, but I want to speak like the country.

Me (in utter disbelief): What on earth for?!

Student: I don’t know, I think it’d be fun.

Me: (I just stare for a moment)

Student: (does a horrible rendition of “Howdy ma’am” and “Ya’ll come back now, ya’hear?!”)

Me (shaking my head): I can’t believe I’m saying this, but if you really want to learn you could start watching Blue Collar Comedy or Larry the Cable Guy.

Student (excited): You’re the best, Miss.

Me (as an aside, he didn’t hear me): Yeah…. no, I’m really not.
