I'm from Long Island. She nailed that archetype, hard.

That was maybe a glib take, I liked this in spite of myself, which in itself is very Long Island.

I think what I was trying to say, and maybe I'll nail it this time, but that it wasn't just hearing someone talk like that, it was hearing something that both sounded & felt very authentic to me.

It's not just the accent, it's the cadence and the sentence structure. It sounded like my mom and my cousins catching up in the next room. It rises and falls the right way.

Ahhhhhh I loved this. Reminds me of the women I grew up with in Boston.
