Get it right

My wife arrived at the book club meeting a little early tonight. In the clubhouse were a friend of hers and Las Vegas cousins of the friend, all playing poker. 

The friend introduced her cousins to my wife. 

My wife said, "I hope y'all have a good time here." 

One of the Vegas cousins looked at my wife and said, "Where are you from?"

"Texas," my smiling wife replied.

"I thought it was somewhere like that, when you said 'you all,'" the Vegas woman said.

My still-smiling wife said, "I didn't say 'you all.' I said 'y'all.'"
