||growing up southern is a privilege. it's more than where you're born, it's an idea, a state of mind that seems imparted at birth. it's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, baseball, bibles, and country music. it's being devoted to screen porches, magnolias, coca-cola, and each other. we don't become southern, we're BORN that way."I spend a lot of time thinking about the difference between how much pleasure I have ever felt and how much my body is capable of producing.
