Catti, years and years ago my husband and I were on a cruise to Bermuda out of NYC. We met 3 lovely couples: 1 from Long Island, 1 from Kansas City, and the other from West Virginia. The couple from WV were newlyweds - very young and too beautiful! I thought their accent was lovely, and told them I loved hearing them speak. They said to me "we like your accent to...where are you from?" I answered "what accent, and I'm from The Bronx/NYC". When I get riled up, my Bronx comes out big time and I can get "down and dirty" with the rest of them. I grew up in the South Bronx in a low income housing project. Guess the old saying is true: you can take the girl out of The Bronx but ya can't take The Bronx out of the girl.
Take care of yourself, and I hope your husband is doing well.
