I've been everywhere man

I have lived in many different places - a lot with very distinguishable language systems (Pittsburgh especially) and it seems not to have affected my home-grown, midwestern roots.

We escaped Pennsylvania without the dreaded silent "l" of swimming in the "poo" after we go "dahn tahn" to pick up groceries from "Giant Ego". It seems that here we must be aware here of that pesky "a" for "o" transfer that seems to be creeping in as my son said "dag" yesterday when he was describing a puppy - we've got to put a quick end to that one!
