Your Accent Gives You Away

Dec 11

Just a word.  That’s all it takes for someone to know I am from the south.  Just one little “y’all” will do the trick.  I was born and raised in Georgia, but even in my southern high school friends would often comment on my accent.  “You sure are a southern belle,” they would tell me…

    Hi Carol,
    I read your post on Internet Cafe today and loved it. I thought I’d pop by your site for a visit. (Southerners do that sort of thing right?…just stop by a friend’s house unannounced for a visit):-)

    I can just hear your accent now. I’m from the Phila. area, so we have our own special accent to contend with!

    I hope my speech doesn’t tell others where I live, but I sure DO hope it gives away who I live for!

    I saw this over at Internet Cafe and this has to be one of the best devotions I ever read. I love when people can take something we can all relate to and apply it to the Bible.

    Excellent writing, keep it up!
