My wife and I went to the movie, Jersey Boys, last weekend. We really enjoyed it. The singing group, The Four Seasons, produced many enduring hits.
I did not grow up on The East Coast and so the Jersey scenes did not bring back childhood memories for me. Sugar, however, felt some connection because, though a Texan at heart, having grown up (mostly) in Texas, she was born in New Jersey and lived there until she was in third grade. Her parents are both from that area, so she still has many relatives there. Half of those relatives are of Italian heritage, like all the members of The Four Seasons.
My Miss Texas is bi-cultural. She also is capable of imitating a Joisey accent as well as the Texas accent at the other end of the linguistic spectrum. I kinda like it.
