I was at work the other day and someone came up and said, “How ya been, Ben? Shot a rooster and killed a hen.” Now, he’s from Cracker’s Neck, Virginia so he knows just about every country phrase there is. Sometimes when I email him, I need Google to help me come up with a phrase that he’ll appreciate, because I don’t know nearly enough to hang with him. When he said the rooster line, it reminded me that my grandma said it to me all the time growing up. It’s a good memory and I’m glad I heard it again today. I love the South.
