Quick One.

So this morning there we were, attending the morning staff meeting and the chief Boer, that would be the CEO, who's seated next to me wants to share the proverb that he was so deeply touched by in church yesterday. or at morning devotionals with his wife today. whenever. The parable about the talents. Y'know, guy goes away on trip, leaves 3 servants with money, they go out and invest the dough... that one.

so anyway he's looking around for someone to read out loud from his Bible and he goes like;

"who'll read out loud for us? Olivia will you? you dont have an accent do you? not like Degstar here; when you speak with him on the phone, you would believe you're speaking with an Irishman!"

me: "eeh, but Gundi..."

now there's no end to Olivia going on about my "Irish" accent. as if, she was in Giza y'know and don't get me started on those babes!

Amphibian, onmanyi, do i floss accent?

Obweda You are one of those guys. Haha So what kind do you have? a Belfast, Dublin, Cork or Limerick accent.

Wama tell them its just a telephone accent that helps you get closer to your international clients.

The ability to pull off an accent(exotic one, that is) is a talent on the verge of extinction;

1. You are making Olivia co-star of this blog. Not that I'm complaining. She is something else, that one.
2. Degstar, you even write with an accent.
