The Wife Speaks!

I know, it's very scary! But I saw this on two of my pals blogs, Nicole and Goodwife.  It looked like fun. It's called a dialect vlog.  Checkin' out how we speak around these parts.  I really enjoyed watching their videos and putting a voice to a face.  Thought it was a great idea.  After viewing my video though, maybe not so much!  I make the dorkiest facial expressions.  And I couldn't even think of some answers (rolly pollies!).  But I didn't want to do it again.  So you got the Wife unedited!

So there is a list of words to pronounce and a few questions to answer.  They are:


Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught
      • What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
      • What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
      • What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
      • What do you call gym shoes?
      • What do you say to address a group of people?
      • What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
      • What do you call your grandparents?
      • What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
      • What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
      • What is the thing you change the TV channel with?



So try it and give yourself a voice!  We're all waiting to hear it!

Yours sounds a lot like mine! We have daddylonglegs and call 'soda' Coke too! The quiz on Facebook tells me I have a western accent, but I'm from Indiana!

Sydney_bitless said...

Hah so I am gonna have to get used to this because going to Oklahoma in a week whenever I call the school I hear that "drawl" too funny.

carrielt said...

Fun post!! Here in Kansas we call carbonated drinks pop. We also call those little bugs that roll up rollie pollies.

I'm getting a Flip mino next week so I might have to do this!! Thanks for sharing!!

Linda said...

I'd say you have a bit of an accent but nothing like the Texan that married the Bossmans cousin......she's been here for just a about 30 years and I still need an interperter.

the Goodwife said...

Whoo hoo! I'm so glad you did this! Girl you are silly, you're beautiful!! And about your twang......The Paintiff's family is from Kentucky and you ain't heard nothin' till you've heard Aunt Crystal talk.........lordamercy!

dee said...

I love this! And you don't have a lot of drawl, but it's there!

Mikey said...

You are SO CUTE!! I love your accent!! I was grinning the whole time. You are adorable! I can see why the husband is smitten with you :)

I guess i'll have to try this!

lisa said...

You did great! I love your accent, and I wish I could have one, but unless I move south I won't get to have one. I have a step sister that is from the mid west and moved to North Carolina and has the accent and love to talk to her! Its funny because I am from Illinois and people here in NY new I wasn't from around here. I didn't think the accent was that much different!

Nicole said...

Oh Yey, you did it! You sort of have a Texas Drawl but not really bad off those words anyway :)

Lil Mama said...

OH MY GOD! You are soooo thin! I would say a bit of a drawl. Just enough to be cute.
I had two friends. One from North Carolina and One from TX. They would get drunk and start in on who had the worst "accent" . Being from CA I just laughed at them both.

You got a gentle sweet drawl girl!

I thinks its catapillers that roll up...

Linda said...

You are so cute! And have a very sweet voice/accent!

Bekah said...

How stinkin cute are you?! I think I might do this, but I'll wait til my cold is gone..I totally sound like a dude right now. Someone called me 'sir' on the phone...ouch.

Rising Rainbow said...

I'm with Mikey too, I was grinning the whole time. You are so cute and such wonderful expressions. Made my day!

Oh, and I would have loved to hear caterpillar.

Jennifer said...

Aw, I want to do this! I need to hurry and get my new 'puter with webcam!

gtyyup said...

Hey!! Great job...and a great idea. BTW...you DO have a Texas drawl...which fits you nicely ;~) But the pronunciation of most of the words are how we say them up here in Oregon. Uh...do you say Oregon?!?

altadenahiker said...

I came over here via Linda at just another day on the prairie. You were great! Highly entertaining. And I don't know what those bugs are called, either. Potato bugs, maybe?

Janice said...

Well done. Accent...you bet. I because I don't know any better would not have known Texas but it is there. The bugs that roll up are Caterpillars I loved to play with them when I was a kid( you couldn't get me to touch one now)they are super fuzzy and soft, black and brown.

Kellys said...

Nooooooooooooooooooooooo.....I hear this every day!!!

Shirley said...

Yeah, you do have a Texan accent but it's not too thick; it's cute, actually, and you, girl, are a beauty!

CTG Ponies said...

I think this is an awesome idea! I think you did great.

Fantastyk Voyager said...

Very cool! You made me chuckle when you said you don't have much of a twang. lol! You look great on camera, BTW.

Sarah said...

That was so cool. I may just have to join along.
