  1. Thanks for linking up to Trifecta this week. I don’t usually enjoy responses that are strictly dialogue, but this one got a good chuckle out of me. We’re American, but my son is growing up speaking British English, and it’s hilarious to hear the stuff that comes out of his mouth.

    Right then. Hope to see you back soon.


  2. I took linguistics from a British woman. Her kids were 100% American. And her daughter, the whole time she was a teen, would correct her Mom, “Mom, my name’s Hannah, not Hannahr.”


  3. Very nice. Short and sweet and ironic. Lovely.


  4. Very funny. I love every accent I come into contact with and must be very careful not to mimic. We had a great time driving across Australia and taking trains and it was all I could do to not embarrass myself that way.


  5. Nice bit of dialogue. I enjoyed it:)
