John Y’s Musings from the Middle: My Lexington Accent

You know how when you are in NYC you talk faster and in Southern California you talk slower and in Texas you give in to your full on drawl?

I went to London, England for the first time several years ago and in no time I was speaking with an English accent.

It changes your mindset too.

Which is my main point about having a Lexington accent. I don’t change the way I pronounce things. But once I drive into the Lexington city limits a reflexive change comes over my entire being and I start to think of everthing in terms of the UK Wildcats basketball team.

Without me ever even opening my mouth.
