I was totally fooled tonight by a girl named Renee.
I have two flatmates. Tonight we went out to drink at two bars. For the first bar, we went to Illini Inn
a bar infatuate
d with the Cubs
, the local baseball team.
I had a pint of Guiness
, while one of my flatmates gained membership at the bar by chugging down
a pint of beer.
The membership consisted of a membership ID # & future beer discounts. Next bar was White Horse
. There I met Renee, the con artist
. And also her friend Brad. And another fellow who I didn't catch his name. Later, as I sipped on my gin and tonic
, I heard that that she was a Presbyterian
Of course, the only city or town I knoow of in the UK, being a stupid american, is London
. I didn't get her horoscope
or anything more, however I thought that her foreign accent
made her really sexy. Not only that, I was all of the sudden
more interested in becoming more knowledgable about the UK.
Afterwards, we were a crowd of 5 pals and Renee at a friend's apartment. We admired the atwork by our peers, displayed at the apartment. We had some candy and snacks. Sipped on some warm cider
mixed with Jack Daniel's
. Then all of a sudden, shortly after Renee's call on the cellphone to Brad was over, she dropped her Brittish accent.
"I'm sorry guys, I can't keep this act up any more."
I was totally fooled. I was convinced she was English, so much so that I thought she was lying to me about being from Northern Illinois
. (Perhaps she felt pressured to fit in in America.
) I was in a state of shock and confusion for a few minutes. But I guess it worked. Pretending to have a British accent made her seem more attractive as a person, for some reason. I'm not sure if it would go the same way for people with American
accent in the UK
. And now, here I am noding drunk about the little con artist
Renee who had me totally convinced with everything that she said
. Boy, do I feel stupid. And drunk.
Renee seemed very satisfied at being successful.
Rana points out re October 6, 2002: Westchester is also the name of a town in Illinois.
