I’m 28 yers of age and i’ve only just discovered my dad has a scottish accent!!!
Obviously i knew he was from Scotland but i thought he sounded the same as the rest of my family
it wasn’t until my friend pointed out that he had quite a strong accent that i thought to question it – that didn’t go to plan!
Me “dad, did you know you had a scottish accent”
Dad, “what? Of course I do.”
Mum “he hasn’t, he’s irish”
Me “really?! I always thought you were from scotland”
*que hysterical laughter from both parents*
I do wonder how i get through life sometimes. Thankfully my body breathes naturally otherwise I’m pretty sure I’d forget to!
