The Kyle Says Moo

I talked to my best friend (who lives in Georgia) last week and she was cracking up telling me a story.

She was visiting some friends with her kids. The one friend was talking to her youngest son who is 23 months. Whenever he would talk to the little guy, he would say his name: Kyle.

Every time, he would say Kyle, Kyle would moo at him. After dozens of times, Kyle started saying moo as if he was annoyed.

It took my friend until then to realize why Kyle was mooing.

Her friend is from Alabama and has a really heavy accent. A lot of people have a hard time understanding him, actually. I have never had a problem, but I have an ear for accents and such.

So every time he said Kyle, it sounded like Cow.

I could almost hear little Kyle's thoughts too. "Moo. I said, 'Moo' damnit! Don't you know anymore animals?!"

I talked to my friend Monday to see how her Mother's Day was and she told me they had gone by this friend's house again and Kyle kept mooing back at him.

She said she told her friend why Kyle was mooing, which made him laugh too. He was trying to enunciate after that, but it still sounded like Cow.

She was crying she was laughing so hard at this point trying to tell me the rest. She said that after a while, Kyle stopped mooing and would just look at the guy and make elephant noises and monkey noises.

She has the funniest kids!

Oh, I know that accent! That oh so relaxed Southern drawl. I LOVE that accent. My family is from North Carolina, so when I visit them, I get to hear that syrupy sweetness coming out of everyone's mouth all day long! lol

Every one syllable word or name gets stretched: Bill becomes Bee-yull, Ann become Ay-unn and so, of course, Kyle becomes Ka-ow. ;) Gotta love the way they lengthen the words, giving that nice lazy feel!

Great story!
