“I've barely said five words to you. What indication could you possibly have that I am a Yankee?"

"Well, we could start with the words 'what indication.' Someone from south of the Mason-Dixon would have said, 'Who the hell are you calling a Yankee?' Then we would have fought.”
Jana Deleon

“Facebook had to be the biggest playground for self-absorbed assholes that the world had ever seen.”
Jana Deleon, Louisiana Longshot

“Are you sure you weren't adopted?"
"Mom would like to think so, but it was a natural birth, so her memory's real clear.”
Jana Deleon, Unlucky
