I really don’t have time to discuss much today. This week we had to have grades in for the first nine weeks, so I’ve been busily preparing for that. Holla if you remember how terrifying report card day was! In elementary school, no matter how sure I was that I had all As, it was still scary to know that my parents would be speaking with my teacher and picking up my grades. There were always a few things your teacher never told your parents. FYI: That is still true to this day. I keep some of my kids’ secrets! 😉
Anyway, instead of getting in to anything too serious (which I could easily do- so much on my mind!), I decided to post an accent vlog. This was big a long time ago, and I never got around to doing it. Reading that some of you thought I sounded really southern prompted me to film it.
Here is the list of words and questions if you want to play along:
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

Oh, just so you know, I had this ready to post about two hours ago. Something distracted me. Well, two things really. I wanted a snack, and I also heard UPS show up! Nothing better than fun mail and food.
Do you pronounce any of the words in a similar way? What do YOU call the thing that changes the channels?
