Default Moi, Have an accent....Get Real:)

The only person who commented on my "SLIGHT" Boston accent, was Mark Proulx, coming from Rhode Island he was quite familiar with it...I did hear some other accents, and since mine is "hardly recognizable" anymore, I was not surprised

Now, c'mon, I have lost my accent, right? Not once did I offer to, "pahk anyone's cah, anywhere near Hahvahd Yahd! But this cruise sure was wicked good! <oops>

How could you possibly have an accent? I would love to sit down and have a conversation with you. Do you think either of us would understand a word the other was saying? When I am in any state, other than Texas, invariably I will be asked "Are you from Texas?" I don't know why..... I have tried to "lose" my accent, but it always seems to sneak back in.

Trip- you have an accent???? Why, just the Oy Vey was enough to give it away! Of course, those of us from flyover country have no accent at all!!!!!

You? an accent? No way!
I at least did not hear, not even once, that I had a "French accent' as I'm always told when I go away! But I will admit to uttering a few "eh's" !!

Trip, I was not there but I have "Bawstin" in my heart. Had I heard you talk It would have been music to my ears.

Woops, sorry to have picked up on your accent Trip - it's just nice to hear my name pronounced in the way I grew up hearing it. More like Mawk as in hawk than Mark as in lark.

Besides, it's me not you. I can pretty much sniff out the slightest of slight New England accents. You know, like a bloodhound on the trail of a fox.

I love accents, they are great and even if people transplant I don't think they should lose them!!! :-) I have friends from Upper Michigan that have lived in Illinois for years and they still sound like a "Yupper"!

On the 2 day portion April and I were talking to these 2 couples and they said they were from Florida. I said, where were you from originally,
where in New York?

I forget if it was the Bronx, or Brooklyn but he talked New York through and through!!! And I loved it, I think at first he thought I was making fun of him, I wasn't!
