11 Silly Sayings That Will Only Make Sense If You’re From Arkansas
The way Arkansans talk is one of my favorite things about the Natural State. From the time I learned to talk, I grew up hearing and speaking fluent Arkansan—and to me there’s nothing like hearing a single sentence to know you’re home. The 11 sentences below don’t seem silly to us at all. They sound like home, but they sound a little different to out-of-staters. That’s alright, they’re fixin’ to get some education. Bless their hearts.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
