Sunday & Southern Monthly

 

Welcome Back to Sunday & Southern Monthly!

If you missed the first installment, be sure to read Issue 1 where I give a full definition of colloquial and a favorite example of one.

Here in Sunday & Southern Monthly in an attempt to bring a little southern style, charm, grace, and humor to you once a month, I publish a colloquialism unique to the South ~ a southernisms.

My lovely youngest daughter, has taken to practicing this every morning ~ 

Playing Possum

Playing Possum

  1. to feign sleep or death.

  2. to dissemble or pretend ignorance

Expanded Definition

To pretend to be dead, a trick used by opossums to defend themselves from predators.  By extension, it also means to pretend to be asleep, or to lie low.
