I grabbed breakfast with a Canadian friend- someone I’ve known since June. I was telling him how much easier it has been to meet people as of late, and life’s been so much better!
His response: you know, you’ve lost your accent. I wonder if that’s why?
I was SO overcome with shock at this! I cannot believe this!!! It’s gone!
Friends of mine who live in Chicago would tell me I had a Chicago accent, so I’m not surprised that people heard my accent here. But it’s actually gone. I’ve been really paying attention to my voice lately. There’s no trace of Chicago in it anymore! :0
