‘Bless our hearts, every one’ III (end)

  “Dr. Rosenberg, we understand this is now being labeled a pandemic by the CDC. Upwards of a half million people have contracted Dialect Identity Confusion and there appears to be no end in sight. Experts from all over the world have been added to your team. Has there been any advancements or breakthroughs in curing this frightening condition?” 

   “That’s sho nuff true, Marilyn! I have a top notch team of whip crackers and they are working roun’ the clock. We have made some big progress in the past couple days but I’m not really at liberty to discuss the details publicly yet.”

   “Can you at least tell us if there is hope for a cure in the works? That are a lot of terrified people wanting answers.”

   “There is always hope, Ma’am. The thing is, we don’t always get what we want in life but Mother Nature always knows what’s best for us. If would appear she has a roaring sense of humor.”

   “What do you mean by that, sir?”

   “The CDC doesn’t want to create an even greater panic across the world but this isn’t actually a disease in the scientific sense. It’s actually an evolutionary advancement. The people of New England are just the first to go through it. We predict the entire world will advance to this new stage of development in less than a year. Well that is, except for us Southerners. We already speak correctly.”

  “Please tell me this is another of your jokes, Doctor.”

  “Sorry Darlin. I’m serious as a heart attack.”

  “Dear God nooooo!”

    “Yes ma’am it’s true. Bless all of our hearts, every last one!”
