The Boston Accent is Now Deeply Embedded

"Mom, I know how to spell awks"

"What?"

"I know how to spell awks."

Not having a clue what the hell awks was, I told him to spell it for me anyway.

"OK, spell it"

"O...X"

"Ohhh, ahhhx. Say ahx."

"Awx"

Flash forward to dinner time and me telling Jeff about the accent.

"Brendon, it's ahx, not awx", says Jeff

"Ahawx". Picture Brendon opening his mouth wide to get the "ah" sound to come out. It looked like he was opening wide to let the dentist see his teeth. He just couldn't get his mouth to pronounce the "ah" sound.

  • I could absolutely picture it. Brendon will have that completely cute Boston accent in no time. And if he wears that clip on tie at a jaunty angle, the third grade girls will just lose it.

  • Boston accent and preppy clothes=girls can't resist.

    I would imagine he pronounce it Tawm Hanks.
