We spent several days last week visiting with friends from Brenham Bible Church. This is the church I preached at from 2010-13.
During a break between visits, Doreen and I went to Starbucks to read. I met a man there from New Orleans with a thick accent. He was curious about about the books I write.
During our conversation he said he “liked to read about oil wells.” I thought he said Orwell so I enthusiastically replied how much I “loved Orwell.”
He laughed and said my confusion was due to his heavy accent.
