Accent

My Swedish husband had a great accent when we first met.  When we went back to Texas on vacation, everyone would ask where he was from.  We (he) got free desserts from waitresses that thought the accent was cute and wanted to impress him.  It was so much fun.

But after a couple of years, my husband’s English got too good!  No more questions.  No more free desserts.  I keep telling him that he needs to play it up, but he’s too honest to do it.  Even the kids speak English too well.  Looks like I’m going to have to step up and fake a Swedish accent if we want any freebies while on vacation.
