|What American accent do you have? |
Your Result: Philadelphia
Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you're not from Philadelphia, then you're from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you've ever journeyed to some far off place where people don't know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn't have a clue what accent it was they heard.

Take More Quizzes
I recently found a website that has weird quizzes, some fun, some stupid, and then there was this one. This one at least was correct, as I've lived 60+ years in and around Philly. Just the other day, I was riding with a woman from church who said she so much enjoyed talking with me, 'cause I sounded like home. She had grown up in the Norristown-King of Prussia area. Since reading Sylvia's note about feeling at home when she heard the MN talk, I wonder where she would fall on this quiz
One of the many things I'm thankful for is my life in AZ. While there is a (big) downside, such as not seeing my kids and grandkids very often, the beauties of the natural world are so much with us here. While this picture was taken last spring, it very much shows just how close to nature we are. These bobcat kits were on our wall, somewhat afraid to jump down after their mother (away from me), but very interested in what I was doing.
One of my grandsons thoughtfully sent to his Grammy one of the things he had often heard me say I wanted -- a yellow Hummer. Since he and I had several long trips together, he heard me say it just about every time we passed one on the road, and we do seem to have a lot of them out here.
So, this weekend, I took it for a bit of off-roading: We got through that first canyon, but WOW! those were some rocks!
Thought we'd surely get hung up on that big rock, but we came through with nary a scratch. But then...
we found ourselves in this nightmarish jungle of cacti. Any of those thorns could have gone right through the windshield, but God was with us, and we got out of there and came home safely! What a great experience! Thanks, Andrew!
