Palm Beach Post, Wednesday, December 8, 1976 B3 There's More to Southerner Than a Drawl Gala! Opening NEW random form of locomotion, you are badly misguided. The Webster definition that comes closest to catching the true essence of moseying is "to move slowly while observing or inspecting." The word in that sense is illustrated by an Eric Sevareid quote: "... moseyed around the general store, tasting the cheese straight off the round." or even devious, manner. But when a southerner moseys up to you, no stealth is involved. Usually it means he is about to borrow something or impart some bad news. Washington being what it is, its southernization probably will produce more moseying up than moseying around. It should be understood, however, that southerners do more than mosey "around." They also do a great deal of moseying "up." To the untrained eye, moseying up might seem to be a variation of sidling. In reality, they are quite different. Sidling up to someone implies you are approaching them in a furtive, Even if you hire a moseying coach, there's no guarantee you can learn to do it correctly. Some people never get the hang of it, just as some people never develop a backhand lob. Furthermore, learning how to mosey is only half the battle. Equally vital is knowing when to mosey.

These manuals may prove helpful in preparing folks for the forthcoming southernization of the government. But language alone won't do it. There's more to becoming souther-nized than merely acquiring the proper accent. Anyone who really wants to identify closely with the Carter administration also will need to learn how to mosey. Moseying is every bit as much a part of southern culture as drawling. And far more difficult to master. Nonsoutherners tend to assume mistakenly that drawling is simply talking slowly. Actually, the southern drawl is a vastly complex verbal system involving intricate patterns of word combinations and rising inflections. The same type of erroneous assumption is common with respect to moseying. The typical nonsoutherner looks upon moseying as nothing more than moving slowly. Whereas it is, in fact, a highly sophisticated form of ambulation. One essential element of good moseying form is loose-jointedness. Or, as Satchel Paige once put it, "jangling around gently." Now being loose-jointed is not the same thing as slouching. When you walk along slowly in a slouch, you definitely are not moseying. 683-4990 EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT V - WAREHOUSE BEDDING OUTLET EEZ PAIN RELIEVING CREAM is a non-greasy, pleasantly scented cream specially prepared and formulated to work fast and last for hours.
