I am the world’s most suggestible traveller. A travelling sponge. When I visit a foreign country, I immediately absorb the pronunciations, accents and customs of the locals. While there, this helps me effectively integrate into daily life instead of being a tourist (I’ve never understood the appeal of visiting touristy attractions and doing touristy things because you just end up hanging with other tourists – is it just me?).
Upon my return, however, these little affectations and pronunciations can make me come across like a pretentious wanker. And nobody wants that.
Lise and Sarah from Those Two Girls know what I’m saying.
BEHIND THE SCENES: Late last year, my friend Bec Sparrow told me about these two girls in Brisbane. “Those Two Girls” she said. “They’re brilliant.”
“These two girls? Which girls?”
“No, Those Two Girls”.
“Wait, what girls? Who?”
