Texas Grandma is visiting J in NYC for the next few days. You New Yorkers up there, be nice to her, hear?
Seriously, I believe she’s been up there three times before, and I’ve been twice. We’ve always had an enjoyable visit and people have always been nice – even though there is a certain noticeable distinctive difference in how people interact up there. It’s very interesting to observe.
Quite a while back I visited Ohio on business several times, and I noticed the same thing there. People are friendly, but it’s not quite the same as at home. And of course, they always think the East Texas accent is interesting.
Hmm, that’s an interesting thought – I just mentioned having an East Texas accent. Texas is big enough to have regional accents…
