I don't speak Canadian, eh?

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.

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."

So I no longer speak my native tongue.
