- She tells me that she went "pee pee" instead of "tea tea"*
- When I say, "Eden..." She replies, "What!" (with attitude) instead of "M'am?" (with deference)**
*I don't understand it but all nurses out here (and probably others I just only have this conversation with nurses) call it "tea tea" instead of "pee." For example, today I had my yearly (oh the fun!) and the nurse said, "did you tea tea yet?" I (not being southern) said, "what?" After three tries she finally said, "did you urinate?" "Oh" I said. (It has been a while since I've heard it and I totally forgot that is what they call it.)
**The children here are so very polite. One of my friends (a transplant as well) received a note from her son's teacher. It told her that he needed to "work on his m'ams."
