I was being waited on by a woman. She was wonderfully friendly, polite, and engaging.
I asked her where she was from. Her accent was not from where we were.
She told me where she was from. She shook her head and said “I’ve been here eight years and I can’t lose this accent.”
I shook my head at her and said “stop trying to lose it!”
Accents are to the ear, what color is to the eye.
And makes me curious about you.
That’s what our differences should do.
