The Accent of my Inner Voice

circle of friends

Yesterday I watched a film that I had, but never got around to watching. Someone had given me the DVD several years ago.  I had put on an out of the way shelf and forgotten about it.  It could be that they hadn’t sung its praises loudly, or perhaps the fact that they hadn’t ever wanted it back that led to its banishment.

The movie was A Circle of Friends.  I didn’t love the movie.  I didn’t hate it either.  It was a fine film with a good cast and had a nice throwback appeal to it.

Just so you know, this post is not a movie review. The reason I am writing about this movie is that it was set in Ireland.  As a result, the voice I hear in my mind–not the nagging one–the one that has all the introspection.  Now, whenever it pipes up, it has a definite Irish accent.  I can’t say as I mind it.  I like my normal inner voice, but this one isn’t too bad.  I guess it is kind of like getting an update on your Siri or Alexa.  I guess we’ll call that “Yesterday’s Weird Moment.”

I suppose if it weren’t my inner voice but my outer voice, it might be attractive. Any thoughts loyal readers?  Is there any accent that you love to hear?  Is there any accent you find irresistible?
