Speech Impediment

Apparently I have a speech impediment that makes me sound foreign.

My job often involves talking to the public at trade shows.  Invariably, after a while, someone will ocassionally ask  what country I’m from.  Thery can’t quite decide.  Am I English, New Zealander or South African perhaps?  Or is English perhaps my second language?

No, I say, I’m just a country boy from up on the Murray.

The most likely explanation is the four years I spent at Queens College rubbing shoulders with the private school graduates, perhaps unconsciously absorbing some toffy language.

But seriously, I’m from HERE. Really!
