It pegged me...

how about you? 

Take the test.  The link is in my result box. 

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North
You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

I do call soda "pop" and am forever being asked if I'm from Chicago.

Born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, moved to Houston, Texas when I was 16 for about 15 years, back to Minneapolis for 2 years, 12 years in Arizona, and about 23 years in Idaho (All figures are approximate as they add up to more than my age by a few years - in case anyone does the addition.)  For the record, I'm only 66, but I'm still a "young" lady.
