    I notice a definite shift in my speech when I'm hanging out with them.

    It's not necessarily the words I use, but how I say them.

    I speak slower and use smaller words, but I do that with people here too.

    Yes.

    It's natural to mimic what you hear.

    *Warning: Repeat Story Ahead*

    I was ordering at Popeye's and lapsed into a Southern drawl, mimicing the 2 nice ladies waiting on me.

    I was horrified that they'd think I was making fun of them.

    And it happened immediately, it was weird.
