During Spring Break, I started watching PBS’s Downton Abbey. As is my tendency with things I like, I watching all three seasons in a week. During that time, I started talking with a bit of an English accent. My emails were pointed, stoic and full of arcane British.
I’ve been sick for a while and have been lying around quite a bit. Needing something to take my mind off the aches and pains, I started watching the FX series Justified. Now, I’m talking with a pseudo-southern drawl. I even said “I reckon” yesterday.
This summer, we’re visiting Bill’s family in Buffalo, NY, I’m certain I’ll be coming home with yet another accent.
