I just spent 5 days with my Mr. Coffee's grandma and 2 aunts from Mississippi and Alabama. I had to try so hard not to imitate their fantastic Southern drawls - I didn't want them to think I was making fun of them.
Mocha Frap asked me on the way to school one day if they were from Australia? He couldn't place that drawl of theirs. I tried not to laugh in front of him. Australia!!! That kid makes me laugh (and cry....a lot....but that's another blog story).
