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.
Oh I adore Irish accents, but then I like English ones too. Anything is better than my Southern drawl...ugh! :o)
We all think we don't have accents... We have traced my fathers family back to Dublin and Ulster, so that's cool that mention the place.
Hope your sandwich was good.
@Wendy-Don't be ashamed of your accent, it is part of who you are and it is a staple of your identity.
@Gwen-The sandwich was quite good, yes, thank you.
