Want To Be My Neighbor? Phonegraphy Challenge

Where I Come From
Where I Come From

Where we live, it’s a like a mile trek to the next door neighbor. Okay, not that far, but let’s just say that if you needed something quickly, like because you set the kitchen on fire or had an unfortunate meeting with the business end of a weed whacker, just as an example, it’d take a few to get to the next house. And that’s if they let you in. Thanks to Dragon Speak, our neighbors think I’m a murderess. I’m not a murderess in case you’re wondering. I was framed. 

(Opening the door, you’d see this first…)

Where I come from…they don’t let me cook in the kitchen

Where I come from, we don’t know how to do back porch pickin’

(And our front porch…)

We may live in the boonies, but I’ve yet to hear any dueling banjos, so I think we’re safe. ;)

  1. “Boonies”? I thought that was just a term around here! Any idea where it came from? I mean, it’s so close to my last name, it’s scary! I originally thought it was “invented” from where my dad’s family was so far from town (actually, just over the hill; < 1 minute..but I was a kid at the time :P)

    1. Okay, so I cheated and looked it up.
      Hey, I’m honest to a fault LOL
      Boonies is short for boondocks and came about in 1898.
      It means everything from wild, rural, backwoods, and jungle. :)
      Yeah, I’m nerdy like that.

      Where I came from, we say hills and hollers and don’t mean yelling.
      Twang is required.
      Then I moved to more of a ‘modern redneck area’ which just means I say boonies,
      have less twang and people out here don’t usually have gun racks, I think ;)

I love getting comments. It's as close to being famous as I'll ever get.
