You might be a redneck if....

OK, I'm from the south. I actually can relate to most of Jeff Foxworthy's redneck jokes. I even laugh, uncomfortably, at some of them.

Since I'm from Mississippi and I have the tell-tale accent, I feel this incredible need to prove to others that I am not a redneck/hick/hillbilly.

Most people probably don't even come to that conclusion, but I know there are people out there who have preconceived notions about southerners. I have seriously been asked if I wear shoes on a daily basis.

All that said, Bob and I have officially let our inner rednecks out. How, you ask? By using duct tape as a baby-proofer.

Yes, who needs to spend $6 on a cord cover when a strip of the shiny, silver, sticky stuff will do just as well?

We've been talking for weeks about getting cord covers, but:

1. we can't find them at the stores we usually hit
2. the hardware store is out of the way.
3. and yesterday Little Elvis discovered the television cable and thought it looked awfully tasty.

Since we definitely weren't making a special trip to the hardware store, Bob slapped down some duct tape.

Will it make me more of a redneck if I paint it the color of the carpet? (with non-toxic paint of course.)

If you can't fix it, duct it.

Genius. Painting it is even MORE genius.
