Once upon a time, when I was living in Austin, Texas, I was out west of the city somewhere (Dripping Springs, maybe) and I stopped in the office of a resort along side a river.  The resort looked nice and I wanted to inquire as to the rates, thinking of maybe a weekend visit. As I was talking to the lady I nonchalantly said something like "I'm not from around here."

Her reply?  

"Yep, I could tell you was a Yankee!"

Now how do you suppose she could tell?


  1. It had to be your accent. You have an interesting expression in this photograph, like you're watching Godzilla on TV and he's about to burst through the screen.

  2. The only thing to say to be recognized in Texas is "I am a proud Texan" and you didn't say that...
