1) What do you call the place where you buy food and household items:
The store. Doesn't matter which store it is, it's "the store".
2) What do you call carbonated beverages:
Soda, unless it's carbonated water - then it's seltzer.
3) What's thing with wheels that you put food and household items in while shopping:
4) What's the thing you carry on your shoulder with your keys, money, phone and cosmetics:
The crap catcher.
5) Do you say y'all?:
Hardly ever, but yes
6) Do you pronounce these words the same? (Mary, merry, marry):
Mary and marry, yes. Merry's E sound is a little different.
7) Do these words sound the same? (pin, pen):
No. Pin is p+in, pen is p+en (with an E sound like the first E in whatever).
8) Do you pronounce these words the same way? (aunt, ant):
Yes and no. The general word is aw+nt, but certain specific aunts are ant.
9) What do you call the public water drinking machine found in parks and schools?:
10) What do you call the thing with wheels that people push babies around in?
11) What do you call a long sandwich on a roll?
Italian. I know that not all subs are italians, but for some reason my family uses 'italian' as a catch-all for sandwiches in that shape, and I can't seem to break the habit. If I get a confused look in a conversation, I'll clarify with 'sub'.
12) Where are you from?
Maine. I have the word choices of a Mainer, but with a kind of flat accent.
Also, Target is le Tar-zhay (like the "zh" sound in zsa zsa gabor's name). But that's because Target's jokingly referred to as the fancy Wal-Mart. Figured we'd fancy up the name a bit.
