I Got Recognized…

…for being a Philadelphian by my accent.

How hilarious is that?

A check out gal at Trader Joe’s overheard me speaking to Gavin and Grace and said, “Excuse me – any chance you are from Philly?” I said, “Yes, I am!”

She replied – “I totally picked that out by your accent.” I told her that was funny and she proceeded to hit me with a barrage of questions after telling me she was from Absecon, NJ. And she punctuated my replies with a vigorous head nodding and said – “Oh yea. You totally have a Philly accent now that I hear you talkin’.”

Great. Pass the wooder, please.

I'm Bridget. 37. Mom. Wife. Worker. I lived in Philadelphia (or thisclose to the city) for 35 years. That's all changed. We moved. From Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. To Portland, Oregon. Cue minor culture shock.
