Junior Diphthong

I'm pretty good at impressions and foreign accents and I've been reading bedtime stories to Doc all this past year using lots of different ones. Irish, English, French, Russian, and different American ones, too. Sometimes he says, "Grampy! Don't talk like that. Use your usual voice."

Well, today he was reading a story all on his own that he's memorized. He can barely read at all and he read it all entirely in a southern accent! It was so much fun to hear. He was laughing through the whole thing. I'll have to find a way to tape it. His words are hardly clear in his own voice so the imitation in a drawl was priceless.
