: Phrases found in "The Most Wanted" by Jacquelin Mitchard (Penguin Putnam, New York, 1998), a novel set in Texas:

: " But Ginny said, 'You keep clear of that one, girl. He ain't a bad man. But he's crazier than a cootebray.'"

: "I had to work in the morning, though I was as sick as a dog eating grass."

: ".Tyler Talley, the 'Ready Get Set' Killer, a nineteen-year-old football star and B student, poor as chalk."

Dogs and cats with upset tummies deliberately eat grass to make themselves puke. They invariably wait until they are on the sofa to do the foul deed.
