Honestly, I did not expect to be misunderstood - refering to the General as Marse Robert should convey to all the feelings of the speaker.


Now I'm confused. Other than a few years in Missouri, which just barely qualifies as southern (my favorite of all the states I've lived in, by the way), I've visited the south eight (I started with four, remembered two others, and then remembered two more. Stay tuned. Does Texas count?) times in my life. I should know that "Marse" somehow modifies a statement? I had supposed it was a rural honorific of sorts.

I returned to the computer after my earlier message to modify my statement but not before you'd already graciously responded. Apparently I hit the "x" instead of the "Send" button. If the mind isn't the first thing to go, it's right up there.
