….Is Meeainly in the Pleeain
Did you take it? I was pleasantly surprised to find that my accent is described as “Midlands,” which they describe as “another way of saying you have no accent.” Pipi was told she has a Boston accent, which isn’t really true, although I do like to try to get her to say the word “drawer,” because unless she realizes I’m fishing for it, it comes out as a one-syllable word with an “A” at the end. (Which I love.) Anyway, I’m glad they didn’t ask me too many long “A” questions, or include any queries about words with hard consonants in the middle, like “mittens” (“mi’ens), which make me go all Cockney for some reason.
