Being Lazy With Your Speech Causes Your Spouse To Question Your Sexuality.

Midwesterners have accents too.
Granted they aren’t as noticeable as southerners. Or even Northerners (I’m looking at you Minnesota).
Nor as famous as New Englanders accents, like in Boston or New Jersey.
But we still have a slight accent.
It shows up in how we get lazy with some words.
Mainly words that end in “-ing”.
We are a lazy and laid back group, when it comes to speech.
So we might turn rolling into rollin, or washing into washin, or running into runnin, or acting into actin…etc.
I think you see my point.
USUALLY, this doesn’t affect the meaning of the words.
Usually.
Until I was telling my wife about the tangerine I had at work and the accident it caused.
Like such…
“I was eatin it. And it was really fresh seemin. And the juice shot in my eye.”

"Seeming" without the "g" on the end, just isn't the same.

I thought people in Indiana turned "washing" into "warshin'"

And, if you don't think Midwesterners have outrageous accents, you haven't been up to Wabash lately.

Sure it was a tangerine.

Seemin comes from a long, round, hard thing call a submarine. What? Oh! Wrong spelling. Good post though, deadeye.

SurferWife said...

And don't you oddballs throw random R's in there, too? Like warshin'?

Your weird, Shitleg.

I hate it when those fresh fruits squirt you in the eye.

Is tangerine what the kids are calling it these days?

Momma Fargo said...

LMAO. I think I peed my pants.

Tangerines aren't the only fruits in this scenario, sonny. :)

middle child said...

It might not have been a problem. I mean, did she ask if she could go to work with you the next day?

The Blue Zoo said...

It was really fresh seemin huh? lol

So, I was RIGHT in the middle of this comment and my kid came in and puked. Everywhere. Ugh. Im blaming you.

otherworldlyone said...

I know someone whose accent is so thick that when he says "semen" it sounds like "sermon". As in, "I totally swallowed that sermon". If I had that accent, I could get away with talking about blowjobs all day long and never get caught.

Right? Right? High five?

Allan said...

lived in Chicago for a bit of time so i hear ya on the accents.

Why can't you MW'erners seem to say "Roof" properly? You can do your next post on how spending time with a group of home builders sounds like spending a day at the SPCA cuz you heard the word "Ruff" every 2 minutes.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

I'm off to get drinkin' some really awful instant decaf coffee. May the force be with you.

WhisperingWriter said...

Haha, hilarious!!

Looks like you got a Boycott American Women note on your blog too. I got one awhile back and was all, "Um?"

jennykate77 said...

Stoppin' by from Handbags and Handguns to say HI!

Cathy said...

I came over from Hotpants place. Love those hotpants.

So, wait. I'm from MN and I've always thought I was a midwesterner. But now I'm a Northerner? This is blowing my mind, don'tcha know.
