I was talking on the phone the other day with a guy in California. Long story short, he asked me if I was from Minnesota. When I told him I was from North Western Canada he said my accent sounded like I was from the Upper Midwest US. All I could think of was, “Do I sound like the people from Fargo???”
Which leads me to this pic. When Canadians say “out and about” it sounds exactly like “oat in aboat.” A truth.
