I really got a kick out of this license plate I found in the parking lot at the mall. it looks to me like someone is proud of their new york accent. recently while visiting wisconsin, quite a few of the natives enthusiastically commented on my accent. one lady seemed quite proud that she identified a "real" new yorker, as if I were an entirely different breed of man. this always amuses me because unless someone is from the deep south or another country, I usually don't notice a difference between my accent and theirs.
what about you, are you conscious of other people's accents?
this is a small part of my world. to see other parts of this great world, please go here, thanks to klaus and his team, sandy, ivar, wren, fishing guy and louise.
