    I spent enough years in SC to have a strong southern accent when my dad was transferred to Md. I can remember being teased, and learning how to fight. :)

    Years later... I took some time off work to spend a month in Myrtle Beach. People who didn’t know my history were commenting about the accent I came back with. lol
