Accents

Accents get me in trouble.

If I hear an accent, I start talking in it. Not to be rude, it just happens.

But more often than not people thimk I'm being rude.

    Hahaha! You should get a T-shirt that says, “Warning! I accidentally mimic accents!”

    If ever you heard me in English… my original dialect is a stragng blend of the warrens, , Manc, some Yank and bits and pieces of many others as learnt English. every word was got with accent of the the speaker, many of those werent’ native speakers . Is my second language. and the first cna still be heard when I amke no effort to remain in th good english taiught me by Gram. She ws a native the East Midlands, had RP and spoke nearly always as taught, htough would slip to her own local accent in close company and when knackered or vry ill. Inded, when she slpipped to ehr own accent, it ws a clear sign sumamt was entirely wrong in Universe.
    I’ve quie a lot of spoken language is whole or in part. I slep easily into the local accents in nay language, it helps me to understand the speaker and for the speaker to be at ease quickly precisely because I cease to sound " foreign " after a short time.
    If you’d evenr had a conversation wiht both a New Yorker, a person of the DEEP South, a Geordie, a South African and a Tasmanian at the same time, you will know how handy the ability to translate English to English can be. Truly, it is a gift and nothing rude about it at all.

    I guess I will live with my disappointments. Do you believe you can love many?

      In different ways. But I believe that you marry one person and are faithful to that person.

        I believe you can love many (poloamory) but we make agreements / commitments to one (usually) that precludes agreement with others. My wife is okay with me loving others, but not okay with me making love with others. I’m okay with her doing what her heart says is good for it.
