Hushpuppies

Last vacation dinner at the Capitol Oyster Bar in Montgomery, AL. The waitress asks our guy if he wants hushpuppies. What are hushpuppies, he says.

She says, where are you from. I can tell you’re not from around here if you don’t know what hushpuppies are.

And I’m thinking, y’all should have been able to tell he’s not from around here the moment he opened his mouth and started taking.

Heading back tomorrow to where the biscuits aren’t as good, they don’t have hushpuppies, and everybody else talks just like us.
