My mother said this to me for years before I figured it out. YEARS. (Yes, I was too dumb to get that she was trying to teach me to say “what FOR” instead of “whut fer”. I also didn’t understand what “don’t talk back to me” meant until the first time my child did it to me. Sue me.)
This conversation went like this:
“Baby, can you go get me the coffee out of the freezer?"
*Moma stares* “Cat fur, to make kitten britches."
For the longest time, I just assumed that meant if I didn’t hop to it, she was going to skin me and use me for clothes.
Much love, y’all.
