I only have a Texas accent if I'm consciously choosing to talk that way. People in other states have flat-out asked me why I don't sound like one. I'm not quite sure how this happened, because I grew up around a lot of central- and south-Texas accents. I can still do them when so inclined. "Reckun so?" :) Cian
