"Bless their hearts"

Recently I learned a phrase said often in the South. "Bless your heart" (or "bless his heart", "bless her heart") -- it means "you're a freaking idiot, if you continue on that path you will likely face destruction, so I am blessing you in the hope that a higher power will help you understand the futility of your actions before they result in your death."

I love that saying. Bless all our hearts.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. - Fully Informed Jury Association - Jin Shin Jyutsu (energy healing)
