When Officer Mena put his hand on his head and showed us that toned arm, I decided to go to San Antonio and get pulled over, can someone tell me what streets he patrols please and thank you I’m from Texas and I don’t use half the phrases this guy uses except for “y’all”. I’m not yelling I’m a texas girl. Also, in Texas all we care about is Dr. Pepper. And whoever calls Dr. Pepper ‘Coke’ is out of your damn mind. Those are fightin’ words!
Cool I’m not yelling I’m a texas girl items!
Been here for 8 years. Most of these phrases are used by cowboys which are a small population of this huge state. Most are rare in big cities. Coke is Indiana, Kentucky area. Texas is “soda”. I’ve only heard it called coke a few times in my life! I’m from Oklahoma but have lots of friends in Texas! I’m not yelling I’m a texas girl I’ve heard it called pop more than anything else! been here in part of the Golden Triangle of cities for 30 plus years. I’ve heard every single one of these repeatedly. You would get a mean look if you ever called coke a soda.
I was thinking same. I grew up calling carbonated drinks “pop” and still do. In Indiana all pop is coke and when we lived in North Carolina all pop is soda. So funny! The Texas dialect changes depending on what region you’re in. I grew up in north Texas, but went to a college in east Texas that was just an hour away. I was amazed at the difference in dialects. Growing up we always said coke, but I now live in the Dallas metroplex. Everyone here pretty much just says the type of soda they want here. I think it because of the high amount to people that have transplanted here.
Click it with love!
Bless your heart! Honey, if you want to sound “Texan” you gotta slow your talking down. It’s called a “southern drawl” because down south (FL, AL, MS, LA, AR, TX) we tend to talk (and pretty much everything else) a bit slower, drawling the words out, than the rest of the U.S. You get an “E” for effort though. But talking that fast you sound Irish. Funny shirt. Also, remember that Texas is bigger than Germany. There are different dialects within the state of Texas. You can tell if someone is from the north, south, east or west by their accent. Also, “all hat and no cattle” refers to posers. It’s a literal reference to people wearing ‘cowboy’ as an aesthetic. Literally, someone wearing a cowboy hat and not owning or working with cattle. No one under 50 uses this term.
