I got Philly, too. Of course I lived there for about 20 years. I am desparately drying to lose it. Or is it "loose" it?

I believe we've done this before. I always come out Southern, despite a brief (75-77) soujourn in NJ.

I've lived in 5 states: OH, NY, NJ, FL and De. Never Philly.

I pronounce water just fine, Wyatt. Better than Henry Higgins.

Total Midland here. Considering I live in Kansas I'd say that's fine by me.
