Accent Misdirection

I just had a random call from someone who didn't know who they were calling in for (hadn't listened to their voicemail yet) and I may have inadvertently walked myself into using the phrase, "Give that a listen." Aside from squirming a bit after that came out of my mouth because it's so uncharacteristic, the guy on the other end of the phone then asked me where my "accent originated" and I'm sure I confirmed his suspicions of all people Midwest sounding like that by telling him I mostly grew up in Indiana. Sorry Midwesterners! I don't normally sounds like that and neither do you!
