Accent Vlog

Some of  my favorite Twitter/Blog ladies have been doing the accent vlog, so I decided to join in
I don't think I have an extremely thich accent, but to people not from Alabama I might-ha!

And, just so you know, I feel so crazy posting this!

Here is the list of words you have to say:
aunt, route, wash, oil, theatre, 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
The questions are:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on someone's house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, it rolls into a ball?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a large group of people?
What do you call a spider that has an oval shaped body with extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when it rains while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you change the tv channel with?

A little background about me and my "accent". I grew up in South Alabama, and after Josh & I got married moved even further south! We now live on the Gulf Coast and are super close to Mississippi {which is where people say ice box!}

That was AWESOME! I NEVER imagined you with such a southern accent! I love it!

Me thinks I need to do this!

Jennifer said...

So cute!! And many of our answers were the same. I didn't know so many people called it a "daddy long legs"

Annie said...

I think that you have a cute little accent...of course I think that you should different because I am from WAY up here in the sticks!!

Jessica said...

I love these! Everything you said is just the same as what I call it. I never thought I had a thick southern accent until I started working here & get made fun of all the time. We have customers all over the country & immediately people (especially northern people) ask me where I'm from! Can't help it though! I would like to do one of these but I'm afraid I would embarrass the heck out of myself!

I love that Kaidence came strolling in right as you were finishing up! She is just precious!
