Another good thing

Two meaningless happy entries in one day-my my my.

Oliver constantly mimics conversations he's heard-complete with phone dialing, cussing, etc and the different voices of whoever was involved. He's been speaking in my voice for a long time now-but today is the first time I've noticed him repeating a conversation between him and me. That makes me feel good. I also like his version of my voice much better than my own.

These two posts really made me chuckle! Wouldn't it be funny if Oliver recounted your conversation differently than you remembered it? I can picture you scratching your head saying "shit, did I say that?" Such a funny visual!

That thought crossed my mind-because he DOES make things up-but usually he uses his voice when he's making things up.

Although once he was listening to music, and in Willie Nelson's voice looked outside and said "well, it looks like snow".

I truly think some of that kind of thing is his interpretation of what he hears or MY interpretation of what he's really saying.

It's interesting-when he's truly trying to communicate something, he doesn't use words at all, but body posture, squawks and gestures. Words are just a pass time.

I've been told I have an interesting accent, lots of folks seem to love it and want to know where I'm from.

From my mommy of course. Not sure who squirted his jiz in her but I'm thankful for the good genes, have out lived my siblings.

Not that I lived life to live long. Been here 30 years longer than I ever expected to.

Anyway, born and raised in the west but been many places so not sure where this unique accent came from.
