I reckon

I ended a phone conversation today with "I reckon you will," which led me to ponder if people thought I said that because I was from the midwest and my parents are Southern, or something.

In truth, saying "I reckon" is an affectation I picked up while doing the play Dark of the Moon in high school that I was never able to shake. All the characters in that play are mountain-dwelling, moonshine-swilling types, and I said it so much as my character(s) that it snuck its way into my daily speech. So now you know... the rest of the story. Good day!

Loads of Britishers "reckon" as well. It just hung on in the South better than elsewhere.

I always wondered where that came from. One more tasty nugget in the "Stuff about Jeff" file I am compiling.

It's not a very long file...I reckon...
