I attended three sessions today at the conference. The first one sucked, the second one was very mediocre, and the last one was amazing. The guy who ran the conference was from a college in Texas and he was talking about how he and his wife were touring the city of Boston. He mentioned that he had for some reason "tried the fried chicken and y'all have to work on that some." Without missing a beat, I shouted jokingly (in the best Boston accent I could muster up), "I've never ordered chowduh in Texas."
What was more interesting to me was how he referred to it as "the fried chicken". The only fried chicken I've ever eaten in the state of MA is my own, which is awesome, and KFC, which is necessary on occasion.
