I'm a native Mississippian and find the use of "bring" for "take" strange.
I can talk about bringing something home if I'm home at the time I'm using
that word. If I'm somewhere other than home at the time, I talk about
taking something home, not bringing it home. Bringing means in the direction
of where I am during the conversation; taking means the other direction.
Same here. GWW
