deb my dad is from
north carolina,
and he still has his accent
even though he's
lived in the midwest
it's funny, though,
how stupid people are.
whenever someone at his work
asks him where he's from,
he says
"south omaha"
and they believe him!
all surprised,
"oh! i wouldn't have guessed!"
bunch of fucking morons
twiggie when i first moved to CT, everyone made fun of my minnesota accent. i never knew i had one. so i made fun of their accents. gradually over the 2 years following that i picked up the long island new york new england italian accent worse than everyone out there. then when i moved here everyone bothered me about that accent. it's faded though. i still say coffee "cwoffee", and when i'm angry i say everything like i used to.

but whenever i talk to my friends from CT over the phone they say i sound like bobby's mom on bobby's world.
i just can't win.
devalis When I went to camp, even the Canadian guy said that I had the thickest accent he'd ever heard. Everyone could tell that I was from Cleveland before I even told them so because of said accent. Weird. 020811
