Local Dialect Meme

I heard about this  meme going around from the spectacular Su and it looked like so much fun!

I hope you guys will play along too, it's really a hoot to hear all the different voices, and put voices to names!

Recording this was really fun...watching it was surprising, I don't remember the last time I really watched myself talk on video tape!  I didn't know I looked like this, haha.  I did a second take, just in case, but didn't realize my camera was zoooomed in on my face.  I watched it and all I could think was "HEY!  TEETH!"  This was was much better :)

If you do your own post, let me know, I'd love to come and see!

Myrnie, I wish I had your speaking voice. Come on! It's fantastic. And I really like hearing the little nuances and different ways in which you pronounce your words.

That is fun! The different names for things is really interesting.

I love how you enunciate your words. Totally a singer. I want to play along, but I don't really video tape well.... I think about it. And let you know if I do. :D
