Why Tired Twang?

I am a Texan, born and raised, but most people don't know it just by listening to me talk. I work very hard and I think I do a pretty good job of not letting it slip...

...unless, I am...

a) in the presence of someone with a very strong accent.

b) in the presence of immediate and/or extended family members (see exhibit a)


c) very tired!

I am made aware of these moments most of all by the cute little grin that creeps across my husband's face followed by the words:
Sweetie, you're twangin'!


  1. Welcome to the adventure of blogging!

  2. Thank you Michelle for being one of my trailblazers. I am having fun so far!

  3. Ha, Ha, Ha, Matilda you've given me my laugh for the day!

    You have a strong American accent, I've probably got a strong Australian accent. (I'd need an non-aussie to confirm that)

    We would probably do much better to understand each other with our fingers (typing) than talking!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
