Took my DW and DD out to see My Fair Lady at the Wells Theater in Norfolk last night. It was awesome. Well the story must be well known to most in here, but for those who don't know, a flower girl, Eliza with a terrific Cockney accent, is selected for a bit of an experiment. A professor Higgins is set to transform the poor, uneducated girl into a "lady" of proper means. Great music, wonderful story and to my American English ear, great dialects. So my daughter says after the play, I am going to be speaking with an English accent for days now. She said how she loves British accents. We start talking about how most Americans would buy anything that a Brit would hawk on television. :p015:
They we start talking about how we can do all the different British accents (Cockney to the upper crust ones) and guess that Brits can do American accents too. Right?;)
We do afterall speak the same language. Right? Dawn's post made me think otherwise...I had to read it over and over to think what is Boots..what is Woolies?
