Just to spread the laughter, I'll give you a few examples.
What I said: Cash register What I should have said: Till
What I said: I have to run errands. *sidenote: I was actually asked if I was speaking a different language when I said this.* What I should have said: I need to go a wee message.
What I said: Do you want some candy? What I should have said: Do you want a wee sweet?
What I said: You want a dollars worth of those penny sweets? *sidenote: I totally knew better here but, ya know...old habits die hard.* What I should have said: You want a pound worth of those penny sweets?
Having said all of that, there have been times when hubbers has told me that I'm picking up a Derry accent. For example, yesterday, we were examining our new curtain rods and discovered we would need to drill new holes in the wall to hang our newly acquired rods. I asked him if he knew anyone that had a drill we could borrow. Except, I didn't say "borrow"...I said "barra." And I was told it was a "barra" in a typical Derry accent. So there ya go.
Okay, now I have a date with Sky TV which we just had installed and can I say...hallelujah! We get all my favorite American shows with a special hallelujah for the HBO shows. So...see ya later!
