"In the South, someone will call you 'pumpkin' and hold a door open for you before wishing you and your family well — only for you to realize that they are a complete stranger." —Sally Kaplan

"If there is an open-flame outdoor cooking food of any type in the North, people say 'barbecue.' I was REAL confused at the first 'rooftop bbq' I was invited to: people grilling, like, asparagus, and no pulled pork in sight." —Liz Wasden
