Bless Your Heart

In the South, you can say pretty much anything you want to about someone as long as the sentence also includes, “Bless His/Her Heart.” This way, otherwise harsh editorials can be softened:

“Bless her heart, she looks like a whore in that dress.”

“Bless his heart, but he’s dumber than a box of hammers.”

“Bless her heart, she really needs to get a grip.”

“Bless his heart, he’s gained a lot of weight in the last year.”

And on and on…

Try it — it’s fun!

  1. Haha! That is SOOO true. In fact, if you’re with TRUE southern women, you don’t even have to finish the statement. You can just say, “Bless his/her heart..”, give that nod, and every woman in there knows EXACTLY what you mean.

  2. LOL… Elaine you inspired my daily post… I don’t think I’ve told that story on-line yet.. might have told it at dinner… was funny
