First 9 years I talked like a typical Seattle person. Moved to Atlanta and had to switch it up quick for people to understand me. I remember one time I went into the store and asked where the pops were. The cashier had no idea what I was talkin bout. Think he said the popsicles were over there or somethin.

   It took 100 repetitions from him and 5 mins for my mother and I to comprehendLOL

Somethings I still say I'm noticing like freeway and not highway. I never liked highway for some reason. I never noticed people saying slaw in the south. I thought everyone says coleslaw.
