I don't think so, I'd have to re-listen. Kind of like a mellifluous Harry Truman.

And the humidifier has been fixed. Five-minute job. I stayed and watched and chatted while it was done—I wasn’t pushy, the guy asked if I wanted to see how basic it was. He’s been here before for a duct cleaning. He bears more than a passing resemblance to Silent Majority here (has an Irish name to boot).
If this were a TV show he would played by James with a fake beard and Canadian accent.
I would love to hear James try his hand at a Canadian accent, the more over the top the better.

I might need some of those too to hear that for an hour, come to think of it.

I know that it probably says more about the part of Canada where I grew up, but I think Fargo is a good starting point for Canadian speech, and then blend it in with Bob and Doug McKenzie.

Also, Scott Thompson does a fantastic basic working-class Canadian accent here.

I had a tin of Altoids which I can't really eat because mint messes with my stomach (acid reflux). I've been eating too many lately and since no one else in the house eats them, I decided to toss them. Just out of curiosity, I tossed them in the toilet, thinking they'd dissolve and that would be the end of it. A few hours later, I had to make a pit stop and found the Altoids floating in the toilet. They didn't dissolve. I expected a pile of powder at the bottom of the toilet but apparently, they're floaters. :lol: Anyway, my toilet smelled like mint. :lol:

Saliva: stronger than toilet water and sometimes just as stinky. :lol:

Bad breath is one of the worst things. Bad smells in general. I often wish I didn't have the sense at all.
