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.

a good way of knowing when a creeper will be an asshole:

--new jersey/new york zip code
--deep south accent

sorry to sound like such a judgey asshole but it's so true. maybe it's something in the water.

Lol that's pretty funny, and I don't doubt it one bit. Not ALL Bostonians are assholes! Just a lot of them haha. New Yorkers are worse. I'm biased though. I rhink people from the East Coast are just more likely to be assholes in general. At least the upper East Coast. I think Northern Jersey and New York accents are pretty bad, too. Well, some of them. Like Long Island accents? Terrible. You don't have an accent though.

Oh, I forgot the deep south. Their accents are baaaaaddd. They tend to make people sound stupid. And yeah, a lot of rednecks would fall into the asshole category.
