When Dale & I first started talking we were constantly asking each other to repeat what they said because the accents were too strong. But now its not an issue, I can't remember the last time we couldn't understand one another.
As time went on though understanding each other has become much less of an issue...except occaisionally there are some words that just get me every time
His parents were even worse, I had no idea what they said 95% of the time. I still cant understand half of what his dad says
It was funny one nite when we were comparing the way we say waitrose...apparently I say it the bristolian way, wait-rose, not way-trose (I know I am not spelling phonetically correct
) which he finds rather amusing
somewhere along the line he tried to mimic me saying er it was just too cute! I couldnt stop laughing
I miss it soooo much, I could listen to him talk all day long
But I think I agree with other posters here, its not so much an accent to me anymore as the sound of the man I love.
And he almost called today too!!! One of the little rugrats shut off the ringer on the phone, so it had my sister thinking her phone rolled over to her husbands cell (they own a business they run from home), so he couldnt get through
