HOW DO THESE PEOPLE NOT KNOW ABOUT SWEET TEA.
I know right!? You try and ask for it out here and they either look at you like you've just asked for their alien child, or they bring you cold, brewed, unsweetened Lipton. WRONG!
Hey, fellow South Carolinian! I grew up in the Lowcountry, moved to NC for college and stayed.
The thing that drives me crazy is that people tend to think that we deep southerners are idiots, gullible, populate via inbreeding, and eat roadkill.
I thought y'all ate gaters. Oh wait... Louisiana... *runz*
And so my post isn't complete spam....
@Stephanie: If you haven't noticed, the south LOVES it's sweet tea. In many areas, they also love to re-enact the early wars of their region.
When I was there, I also noticed that a lot of families have deeply-rooted ties to their area, or even their homes. Many of the southern families I knew had been on the same plots of land for at least 3-4 generations... so a lot of family history there.
