25 Words That Have A Totally Different Meaning In Texas

Photo © Skeeter Nash

I love lists that writers come up with about Texas. Having lived here for just shy of two years myself, I always find them educational and, often, amusing. Texas has its own pace, its own attitude, and–according to this list–its own vocabulary when it comes to the 25 words mentioned.

I’ll use the first 2 words on this list as examples, from the article by Javier Moreno at buzzfeed.com:

1)Summer.

What it means everywhere else: A time for vacation, road trips, and fun in the sun.

What in means in Texas: Hell on Earth where the temperatures rarely dip below 100 degrees.

2) Winter.

What it means everywhere else: The colder months of the year.

What it means in Texas: The few short weeks when 40- to 50-degree temperatures send the locals into a deep freeze.

You get the idea. Check out the remaining 23 words by clicking the link below, and see if you agree or disagree with Mr. Moreno’s interpretations.

I especially like #25.
