When did you become a Brit?

by G.B.Reaux on March 12, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I'm obsessed with British people, or anyone with a cool accent so yesterday when I got home from school, I was talking in a British accent pretty much all day. It probably wasn't very good either but it happened. Anyways, I was getting something for my mom and my grandma asked me this question and my first instinct was 'I always was, I'm just better at an American accent' and I thought it was funny so I'm sharing it with you lot. ha
