I love living in the South. I'm always running across new and inventive turns of phrase. Right now, I'm sitting in a local coffeehouse where the owner is discussing plans with her staff for their New Years Eve party.
"We'll have a buffet, a band, dancing, and white tablecloths. We're going to dog it out!"
Dog it out? That may just be my favorite phrase, ever. The next time I go to a fine restaurant or travel to Europe, I'll make sure I "dog it out!"
