You might be a Southerner: Shugah

(Source: WBRC) (Source: WBRC)

If you have ever been invited to "come over here an' gimme some shugah", you might be a Southerner.

In this usage the sweetener commonly known as sugar is actually referring to the sweetness of a kiss plastered on an elderly relative's cheek usually by a young child. It will likely be returned with a big juicy, lipstick-covered kiss on the forehead of said child. 

This practice tends to be enjoyed progressively more as a Southerner ages. 

Does "shugah" remind you of someone special?
