    Haha! Delightful! Leaving just enough unsaid. I don't know what kind of accent she has, but I can easily place some of my relatives in this poem. Slipping into an accent seems so natural around others who share it. The ku also has me wondering what else (beliefs or otherwise) we might slip into without much thought.
