TRUE GRIT

I am not much one for westerns, however, I watched the film True Grit the other night. To my astonishment, I found that I quite enjoyed it. I believe the way the characters innocently spoke the obvious/truth and how they pronounced every syllable is what kept me interested.

Example from LaBoeuf: You give out very little sugar with your pronouncements. While I sat there watching I gave some thought to stealing a kiss... though you are very young, and sick... and unattractive to boot. But now I have a mind to give you five or six good licks with my belt.

After exiting the theater, and reviewing the film with my friend, I tried to speak as they did in the movie and found it rather difficult. I had to concentrate on not using contractions (we are so lazy in our speech these days) and frankly felt I sounded a little slow talking that way. But I'm gonna try it...a full day of using my True Grit speech. Starting....NOW...
