My new co-worker is from Jamaica. When she says "I went to CVS and picked up some Cinnamon Toast Crunch" on the phone to assorted family members, relatives, babysitters, et al., it sounds like "Me wehn CVS and me piock uip somma Cinnamohn Toaaost Crunch, jah?"
I said I liked her patois and she said she was surprised I knew what it was called. Pretty soon, I am gonna start talking like that too. Then I'll be smart and have an accent, which is sure to attract potential mates. (cuz you know, everything I do in life is to get a man).

P.S. Dear World, I would just like you to know that Harvard pays 12,500 damn dollars annually to a country club for the Golf Team. Thanks, MF
