The Southern Family Tree

Eddie has a brother-in-law named Bubba. Last night while watching TV, an actor came on the screen and I said to Ed, "He looks like Bubba."

After another second, sort of to myself but still out loud, I said, "I never thought I'd know someone named Bubba."

And then to myself I thought, I can't believe the name 'Bubba' just came out of my mouth.

I guess that's a result of dating someone from the South.

LOL! You are so funny, girl! I know lots of Bubbas, but then I've lived most of my life in the South.

I always wondered -- is Bubba a common nickname for something or is it really a name?

I don't think I know anybody called Bubba.
