On Lookbook.nu forums, there is a thread where people post videos of themselves saying a silly story that is supposedly made to show off your accent. You can see some of them here . I made one myself and I thought I'd post it, since I haven't had much time to blog lately with working almost everyday and being out of town on days I'm not working.
I wanted to do it after I had a sale the other day and I asked the lady "Would you like a bag?" and she said, "What?" So I repeated, "Would you like a bag?" And she said yes, and as I bent down to get the bag she whispered to her friend, "This girl has the thickest Minnesotan accent, I hardly have any idea what she's saying." Which, naturally, made me laugh like crazy as I barely have any type of accent. I do however, have a lisp on my "s."
