Brooklyn accent

March 26, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Shopping today and this trip took me up to Artarmon, by train, of course to buy household goods at Bunnings. "Bunnings" is alot like our Home Depot or Lowe's but a slightly smaller scale. I met a nice young chap, Henry, who was intrigued by my accent. He was eager to tell me that he is in a school play and his part requires him to speak with a Brooklyn, NY accent which he was having difficulty mastering. I tried giving him some tips and wished him to "break a leg." He was also very curious and fascinated by our American money, particularly that our dollar bills are paper! So funny, since we were surprised that Australians have not only $1 coins but also $2 coins, now isn't THAT strange? Really weighs the wallet down... Notice that the Queen is on the back of every denomination. The paper money is also very colorful and interesting, until next time!
