Hahaha Evan just told me that I say Boston wrong. I spent the first 20 years of my life there, and I reminded him of that. His response was, "Well you'd think you would know how to say it right then." Lol.

It's because he says it "Bah-ston" like most people do, and people from Boston say it with a longer "O" sound than that. Not a full long vowel sound, but with more "O" than "ah." Like an "owh" or "awh" sound...I don't even know. I don't know how you'd spell it out. I only have a tiny hint of an accent left, but I know there are some words I say with a slight accent, and Evan ALWAYS notices and points it out. He mostly points out words with an "ah" sound in them. I have mentioned more than a few times that I don't like the Boston accent, and I never had a real thick one. But now it's almost entirely gone and I'm very happy about that. Getting rid of the accent was partially due to conscious effort, but most of it just kinda went away with time. I'm trying to think of the word Evan always points out. "All" is the one he has probably pointed out the most. He thinks I say "dog" funny. It sounds normal to me. Jenny said it doesn't sound very much different than the way she says it. She said the vowel is just a tiny bit different. But Evan thinks it's hilarious.

That little story is probably way more amusing to me than it is to any of you haha. I just thought it was funny that he told me I said it wrong, even though I'm from there and he's never been there.

One of these days I'm going to talk to him with the thickest Boston accent I can possibly muster all day long and see how he likes that.
