I'm just teasing Bobert.    But you have to admit, it gets a little stale after awhile. At least Mark Twain was clever and funny!!

Dialect is very tricky to do well and I've never been a big fan of using it. It is very easy to make it sound like mockery and fall into sterotypes. But you are right, it can add color and make a story interesting when done right.

Hmmm... my wife drives a Toyota and I drive a Nissan. I also love good BBQ, which you can't find here in NJ!!   Maybe I've been living a lie all these years!
