Accent Vlog

Well ladies, I did it.. my first Vlog. 
Please don't judge me by my unbrushed hair and lack of makeup.
And while we're at it.. don't judge my double chin, lazy eye, or my dumb voice.
haha I am seriously not this hard on myself IRL, it's just super weird seeing yourself, flaws and all, right in front of your face.

Anyways, I was born and raised in the same house, my whole life.. in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. If you watch home videos from me when I was younger, you can barely understand what I am saying because of my southern drawl. These days, I sound just like anyone else. So many people have moved into this area, it's almost hard to call it southern. Of course, we still have our southern ways and tendencies. A lot of us still love NASCAR and have big family lunches after church on Sundays, but a lot of our 'southern staples' are gone. I hate that. I miss my accent. So please, by all means, if you think I sound even the least bit southern, tell me! I will take it as SUPER compliment!


Here are the words:

Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

                                                            And answer these questions:

What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you use to change the TV channel?

Gah, I AM AWKWARD.
haha Have a wonderful day ladies!
