My last two entries have gotten me thinking of home. I grew up in New Hampshire just over the Massachusetts border about an hour’s drive north of Boston. I first included a nod to my fellow Boston-area peeps with my Harvard/Hahvahd interpretation in “Global Dexterity“, then there was my St. Patrick’s Day post. The Boston area is home to the highest concentration of Irish-Americans in all of the United States which means that St. Patrick’s Day is big where I come from whether you are Irish or not.
In honor of my little corner of the world, here are a few tips of how you too can sound like you come from the Boston area of New England.
