This trip to Canada I found myself saying "excuse me" like someone from the states and I felt like I no longer spoke Canadian. I was driving me batty. <br /><br />Just as we were leaving a Canadian asked me "How are you?" and when I said, like an american, "fine" without thinking, he called me on it and said, "but it sounds like you have a cold." <br /><br />So I no longer speak my native tongue.
