The following is an interactive survey/quiz that says a lot about our talking patterns. It was in today’s NYTimes. Patti and I had a real blast with it. Apparently, after I took the quiz, it showed that my talking patterns are more in common with folks who live in Amarillo, Lubbock and Ft. Worth.

Take the test and LET ME KNOW what part of the country reflect your talking patterns. This will be fun.

Merry Christmas to you all.
