My blogging buddy Cat from 3 Kids and Us can’t understand a lot of what I say. Apparently I sound like I’m from Canada. So when I saw her and several other bloggers taking part in a dialect/accent vlog link up, I decided to take part.
I have found that even within the same state there can be vast differences. In college my husband and I became great friends with a couple from the western part of the state who said several things differently. For example, they invited us over for “barbecues” which I assumed was either BBQ pork or something grilled. Um, no. They were sloppy joes! They also referred to the meal the night before a wedding as the Groom’s Supper. Now, I use the term supper all the time but I’ve only ever referred to that as a groom’s dinner or rehearsal dinner.
So what do YOU think? Do I sound like I’m from Canada? Do I follow the stereotypical Minnesotan accent that you hear in all the movies? (And for the record, I DO NOT say “you betcha”.)
