My mom says “wash” with an r sound, like “warsh.” My husband says I do too, but I don’t believe him. What does he know about pronouncing words correctly? He calls pecans (pronounced “puh-cons”) “pee-cans.”
Day 5 of your stories: accents.
When did you realize you had an accent?

Have you ever been afraid to speak because you knew you didn’t sound like everyone else? Write about it!
