Accents Conversation

We were looking up some swamp tours for our trip to New Orleans.

Me: Y’all getton outta heah. (said in a Cajun accent)

Rich: Get offa my land.

Me: Hey, we’re doing a pretty good Cajun accent.

Rich: Yeah, you keep telling yourself that.

Me: It’s better than me trying to do a British one.

Rich: You get off my land

Rich: What was that? I sounded like Snagglepuss! This is NOT a Heart at Home!

*no offense meant to any specific accent.


Tom Petty Conversation

We were driving home and Here Comes My Girl by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers came on the radio.

Me: Leave it there, I love that song. It’s my favorite Tom Petty one.

Rich: Not mine

Me: No listen, it’s brilliant. When he’s talking about the town being useless and stuff like that, the music is more harsh and solemn. When he talks about his girl though, the music brightens and becomes happy.

Rich: Whatever

Me: I can’t help it if you don’t understand the arts.
