facial blindness is a real world problem. People don't understand why I do not recognize them when out of common surroundings.
60 minutes did two show on the topic.

Sounds like a 'Booby prize'

What's the origin of the phrase 'Booby prize'?
A Booby is a type of gannet. 'Boobies' has also been used as a slang term for breasts since around 1935. This booby is neither of those. The word has been used to mean dunce or nincompoop since at least the late 16th century and that's the 'booby' of 'booby prize' and 'booby trap'. The word probably derives from the Spanish word 'bobo' meaning 'fool' or 'dunce'.


all in good hearted intentions, of course :ROFLMAO:

It's a great word, one you can use often now that you have broadened your breadth of knowledge.
I just can't see me using that word with my southern accent.
However, when it comes to conceal carry I'm definitely a doer - obligatory gif, just for you. ;)😁

The southern accent explains a lot.
I grew up in KY but my mother was from TN.
I've been in FL over a year & half. Apparently it takes longer than that to get rid of an accent.

Woman working in Publix deli hears me speak and says, "Where are you from?"
"I' live here, but I'm originally from KY"

She says, "I knew you were from KY"!

Dental hygienist was being all serious asking me questions, thought I'd lighten things up.
"I've been in FL over a year & half and I got rid of my southern accent"
She laughed :ROFLMAO: and said "Oh no you haven't"
I said, "Next time you see me I'm gonna sound like Florida man" :LOL:

I'd be a terrible prank caller, except in TN. :rolleyes:

I hear people from the north (NY, NJ) and their accent stands out to me.
If I had to either have the southern accent I've got or that, I'm not sure that's any better.

I hear many more New Jersey/New York accents when I'm in Florida than I do southern accents.
