quicko: accents

After two years of introducing myself as being "from America" to native Hoosiers (you can't imagine how many times I managed to do this), I finally have developed an ear for American accents. And guess what! I heard them all over in Hawaii! I was so excited I had to stop myself multiple times from rushing up to someone to find out which state they were from as I'd remember only just in time that most people in Hawaii were American and wouldn't consider me such a novelty. So I contented myself with only rushing up to people sporting Cincinnati gear -- which happened twice (!!) in one small control room of the USS Missouri. We had a regular little flying pig rendezvous!
