  1. You’re from Texas? You have a very strong hackney dialect. I luvvit. This is fantastic, people do this to me all the time, thinking I’m from somewhere else because of what I sound like. Now I get to do this to someone based what they write. I’ve really mucked it up. No offense. I meant it the nicest, warmest, huggiest way possible. (Dying from embarrassment). xoxo SB
