Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

A Dublin accent?
Today, as I was purchasing my Friday sandwich treat (remember when I was blogging about sandwich treats?) in my favourite sandwich shop, the new guy (but not a very young guy) told me, as I was ordering, if I was from Dublin, as I had a Dublin accent. Brits can get the strangest ideas. I found it quite funny, and as I love Ireland and Dublin, kind of flattering, if completely undeserved. My accent when I speak English is a little bit out there, difficult to define, an English Canadian would identify it right away, but that's about it. Unfortunately, I never managed to sound like a native, however it is nice to know some people think I am. And from Dublin, it is even nicer.
