I Love a Good Mystery!

You’ll See, or Hear, the Truth to My Claim

I’m so flattered that Lena Nelson Dooley asked me to join her on her internet radio show! I’m so excited and you’ll get a chance to hear for yourself just how much of a hick I am when you listen to the recording!

Did I ever tell you about my trip to Mexico a couple of decades ago? Oh, that’s a story!

So I went on this great mission trip many, many moons ago, which testifies to how deeply embedded this accent of mine is. I’d been told by the mission board that a Texas Driver’s license was all that airport security needed to let me back into the country. Well, what did I know about international travel?

No, they didn’t accept a driver’s ID as appropriate entry. Not even back then. But apparently they accepted hick as an acceptable alternative. When the security guard told me my license wouldn’t be enough, I let off with a, “Yore kiddin’ me!”

He laughed. “Honey, you couldn’t be from anywhere else but here, huh?”

How embarrassing. But at least I didn’t embarrass myself during my interview with Lena. No burping or excessive sniffing or anything. Except the accent. And that just has to be experienced. You can find the 12/20/12 The Gate Beautiful show at the link, or look it up at

Your turn: Did I expose my hick side? And what type of accent to you have?

  1. What a blast that interview was! I don’t think I sounded too much like a hick!
