Riding in Cars with Boys – Part Fourteen
Today on the way to school, we were discussing Halloween and costumes.
Corwin: I need a Russian accent for my costume.
Me: Beg your pardon?
Corwin: My costume needs a Russian accent. The guy is Russian.
Me: You realize they don’t come prepackaged, right?
Corwin: Duh, mother. I have to develop one. Why don’t we have an accent?
Me: We do. It’s called a midwestern accent.
Corwin: Well, I’d rather have an Irish accent or a Scottish one.
Me: You and me both.
Corwin: I wonder what the girls at school would think if I had an accent.
Me: They’d probably love it. Trust me – girls dig accents.
Corwin: Memo to me: must get accent, soon.
Yep…that’s the one I have.
