Just for Fun

Sometimes I'm in the mood for silliness....Frankly I just need a break from all the squares and pattern writing so I've been cruising...

It cracks me up whenever I travel that people tell me I have an accent. Yes, of course I do, we ALL do. They often tell me I talk "funny". I'm not going to throw stones here, but I myself have heard some pretty funny accents from the far flung reaches of this country...nuff said...and said lovingly.

The thing that really cracks me up is that they act as if they have never heard anyone speak as I do. Makes me wonder, and often question them, as to whether they listen to the national news or not. I literally had to prove to one dear friend (a New Yorker) by comparing the commentators on her local nightly news to those of the network nightly news. I about died when she admitted she had never really heard the difference before! ROFL


What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.
