Before I moved here I don’t believe I’d ever heard the phrase might could. As in We might could catch a movie on Saturday if you’re up for it. There’s a lot of local colloquialisms that had me shaking my head. Took a few years, really, before I stopped cocking my head sideways while I translated in my head.

We’re fixin’ to head out…

Pass me that there broom…

Saw you at the church yard sale, bless your heart…

Nah, I say we just get ready. I may go meet my friends, I may not, but let’s leave the fixin’ to and might coulds out of it.


Linda hosts Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt is “may.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
