So I met an american woman the other day.
Her american accent was so strong I thought she was a tourist- So I asked her, as I always do when I run across Americans where she was from.
She said she was from San Diego but that she lived in Ireland now.
(GASP! Another American!! In Limerick!!)
So I asked her how long she lived in Limerick- She said 11 years which shocked the crap outta me- 11 years of living in Ireland and her accent was still so American!! I've only been here a year and a half and my accent is all over the place! I actually was mistaken for Irish the other day (by another Irish person surprisingly enough!) and when I told that person I was American they said "Oh yeah- I can hear a hint of an American accent in there!"
So 11 years and her accent not changing? Astounding!
Anyways- well so we got to chatting briefly and I told her that I hadn't met any other Americans here yet and would love to meet up with some.
She was surprised and right away asked me for my number so we could get together. I was more than delighted and gave her my mobile number.
And then I waited...and waited some more.
She hasn't called.
Its like giving your number to a cute guy....you hope they call...you wonder if they are going to play that stupid game and wait 3 days before they call.
And then no call.
Who knows, maybe she will call still....maybe she lost my number? I don't know.
I hope she does though.....I really want some American buddies on this side of the Atlantic.
