I don't have an accent normally, but if I'm speaking with people from farther south than Richmond, it starts to creep in. If I'm spending multiple days in the Carolinas, forget it, I'm a Southern belle all the way. The other night I was playing Cards Against Humanity with a bunch of native New Yorkers and one guy from DEEP in SC. It was only a few hours, but my southern accent came out strong. I just can't help it, I promise I'm not a faker!
