Y'all are so saweet (sweet....get it?).

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).

It is the most pleasant accent and so easy to slip into, even for us North of 49'rs.

My son recently asked me "where is it people get malaria Australia or Africa." Then he says "they have giraffes in Australia, right?" Okay, evedently it's time for some geography lessons!!

When I was a girl there was a woman at our church with a Tenn. accent. My mom would get in our car after chatting with her and be speaking with a southern drawl. We would start cracking up! She would be mortified, hoping that her friend did not think she was making fun of her.
