iPod shuffle needed

Starbucks Dude: You have an interesting accent. Where are you from?

Me: West Virginia.

SD: Really?? Not what I would have guessed.

Me: Were you thinking further south? Kentucky or Tennessee maybe?

SD: No, Sweden actually.

Me: Huh. Perhaps I have been a bit more obsessed with Lykke Li and Robyn than I thought. Might be time to give them a break in the rotation.

SD: I'm sorry, what?

Me: Nevermind. But thanks for not thinking I sound like I'm from West Virginia.

SD: You're welcome I guess.

*It should be noted that SD had an accent of his own and therefore is probably as unfamiliar with the WV stereotype as he presumably is with Swedish accents.
