34. I do have the "twang"
My friends from up north have fun with it and foreigners love it. Brits love my accent and it brings up some great topics. Mostly they ask, "Are you from Texas?"
North Carolina has lots of variations. My mother is from the eastern part of the state and my father's if pure piedmont. I'm a nice blend.
