I was chatting with a friend the other day about the weather in regards to how nice it has been lately. But we all know in a few days we'll be in the thick of summer.

The phrase that was uttered by my friend during our conversation that made me turn my head like a dog look at their goofy owner was: "It's not that humid outside today."

Yeah, words virtually never uttered in south Louisiana...ever!

That got me to thinking of things you just never hear in south Louisiana. With a lot of help from friends and listeners of 97.3 The Dawg, here's the running list.

  • It's a dry heat.
  • I should've bought a heavier jacket.
  • You can't eat that.
  • I didn't buy anything at Walmart today.
  • Let's go snowboarding.
  • Verot School Rd rocks!
  • I just read this article in the New York Times.
  • The drainage in Lafayette Parish is amazing.
  • Who's got a snow shovel I can borrow?
  • Mais that (animal of your choice) is too cute to put in a gumbo. Let's keep it as a pet.
  • I root for the Cajuns AND the Tigers, me.
  • How 'bout them Cowboys!

  • Gumbo, oh no, it's too hot for that.
  • Where can I find booze in this town?
  • No thanks, I don't need any Tony Chachere's.
  • Three pounds is enough.
  • You know, I've never been to Cowboy's.
  • No bread pudding for me, thanks.
