A Note on British Accents
A few weeks ago, I went on a date with a guy who reminded me of Edward Snowden, but with a British accent. I considered this to be a good thing.
We met for drinks at a bar near the Flatiron, and proceeded to drink lots of gin and tonics on the patio. He asked me, “Do you have a thing for British accents?” to which I replied, “No.” I asked him, “Do you have a thing for Asian girls?” to which he replied, “No.” We were both lying, I’m sure.
What is it about these accents that make them so dreamy? Is it that you can close your eyes and imagine you’re on a date with Colin Firth? Or Voldemort? (Hey, whatever you’re into. I’m not here to judge.)
He made it pretty clear that all he wanted to do was sleep with me, and I made it clear that it wasn’t going to happen, so we probably won’t see each other again (although we text from time to time). However, if he wants to read a book to me or something, that would be quite lovely.
