I didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings. I was making an observation about my own dear family. The funniest accent story I have is between me and my cousin, Tracy. Tracy was born in Alamagordo, NM, raised in Dayton, OH and went to school in NC. (She has a Master’s in speech therapy) Everyone thinks she is the southern raised one, and I’m the northern raised one! She swears that she can’t practice speech therapy anywhere but NC, because no one else would understand her clients[:D] So it takes all kinds. I love them all and nothing sounds more "right" to me than a slow drawl!
