I wanted to tell people to “Sod off!”
I was very excited about this idea and expected her to feel the same.
She made it clear that this could be a deal breaker in terms of our relationship, so I backed off.
But now I have an idea.
I listen to about four or five hours of podcasts and audio books a day.
I know it sounds like a lot, but the Bluetooth headphones basically sit atop my head for much of the day, so whenever I am walking, driving, working out, doing chores or am otherwise occupied by activities that do not require my auditory attention, I am listening to a book or podcast.
With this in mind, consider this:
What if I began listening exclusively to British podcasts and audio book read by British readers?
Would I naturally begin to develop a British accent?
Or at least be able to pull off a fairly decent impersonation of a Brit?
After all, she can't complain if my way of speaking changes without any effort on my part. Right?
