THAT IS SO HILAROIUS!!! Laughing Laughing Laughing

I've always had this fascination with boston which i cant really explain and no one else can understand. everyone says "what the hell do you want to go to boston for?whats in boston? isnt everybody rascist in boston?" (which i think is absolutely ridiculous Rolling Eyes )

i dont know i guess being from the midwest there is something so f*****g sexy to me about boston accents -the thick "pahk the cah"accents -OH MY GOD THATS SO HOT!

i wish mark didnt cover his up all the time now-every once in a while it will accientally slip out and i'll be like "aww yea baby, thats what im talkin about!"

Well I do agree that New Yorkers, and people in Boston tend to talk fast..
I wonder at times if they have to set a time to just breathe..LOL..

But, I love listening to people in Boston talk , but then again they tend to get me back and say that I have a southern accent... And ask me to say different things.. It's only fair, I mean how many times can you ask a person to say Car, before they smack the hell outta ya..

I haven't been to Boston in years, god, I was just a kid when I was there, I plan on going back one day, I had family out there, so it might be time for a road trip..

Hell, I might just pack up and move out there, change can be a good thing..

OK, I am so guilty of saying Ya'll..
It is so a southern thing, don't ask me why.. And, yes we tend to talk slow.. That I haven't figured out yet..
I know people from New York and Boston must think I'm nuts, cause I end up with a smirk on my face when they talk..
Just like when someone from Boston, says Boston, it comes out sounding like BAW-STON...lol...Makes me laugh everytime..
