Funny, a few years ago a friend brought this up. Catchphrases and differing ways of saying common word.
We came up with a few ideas and tried to spread them. For the life of me I cannot remember any.
Greensage, you bring to the table accents and inflections to the conversation. I have moved around the US extensively. California, Missouri, Illinois,
Ohio, Florida, Massachusetts plus a couple more.
I actually like hearing the different accents and trying to emulate it. I find it kind of fun, kinda like acting.
Toity toid and toid avenue.
Dontja know aye?
Dis ere is me gamma.
Several times coming back to the Midwest I was told I had actually picked up inflections and accents where I had lived for awhile. Probably my attempt
to mimic those around me.
But, the weirdest place was in Central Missouri where a lot of the people had this slow southern drawl that when a women talked I found Boo Yah. But,
they had a hard time understanding me. I was told I was talking way too fast.
I am trying to think of something those in Fresno thought was hilarious when I moved out there........oh yeah.
Ever hear? Did you go to the show orno? ORNO said quite fast instead of or not.
People would just look at me funny and say WHAT?
Okay everyone, I want that to go global, a new way as a ending to a sentence, orno?
