Southern Word of the Week - Stove Up

Stove up

Examples:
(v.)Daddy can't go play ball with us, he's all stove up (not able to move well due to aches and pains) from pullin' weeds in mamma's flower garden yesterday.

Stove up usually means you can't do something because you spent a lot of other time doing another strenuous exercise.  One becomes stove up more often as one gets older.

Have you been stove up?  Let us know in the comments.

Oh yeah, I'm always "stove up" after one of George's band gigs. Being a roadie is strenuous exercise. :-)

Yesterday my Southern fiancé said he was "stove up". Because of your blog I actually knew what he was talking about!! Thank you for encouraging effective communication between a Midwestern girl and a Southern boy. :-)haha! ;-p
