Wood, Mary Morgan and I were in West Texas this weekend. Mary and I made a quick run into Target to pick up a few odds and ends. We went to check out, and the cashier was putting each item in its own bag, so I told him, "It's okay to pack them full, the fewer bags the better."
This teenage kid stopped in his tracks, looked at me aghast and said, "Ma'am. Ma'am. WHERE DID YOU GET THAT ACCENT? You must be from OHIO or something." I laughed out loud. I looked at him and said, "I thought it was YOU with the accent!!!" He laughed in response.
Boy, all depends on where you're coming from, huh?
