my accent following me

Today I was browsing the postcards when a senior gentleman asked me which of two magnets looked better. I replied that the black and white one was more dramatic.

He asked where in the Midwest I was from.

I've been in Texas for 7 years now. Before that, Florida. Age 1-8, Pennsylvania. Specifically I have a Philadelphia accent with Michigan influences even though I've never lived either place. But I have a lot of the same accent as Mom, who is Philadelphia-Delaware Valley.

Anyway, it really tickled me that the situation came up. ^_^
