Where I BE? Can you guess?

  1. Can any of you guess where I Be (am at) right now and why I am there?
    Don't say I am on my PC but aside from the PC, guess the above? The winner will get an extra card on their birthday.

    Since your location says "cajun land" and your speaking without regard to tense, I'd guess you are in N'awlins (New Orleans).

    How does that account for the wording : "where I BE" ? That's clearly intentional.

    Creole...verbs are used in strange ways. Past tense doesn't seem to exist. "Be" is often used in place of "is." But I could be wrong...need to wait for the judge to give the final word here.

    I thought so too...so the capitalized "BE" is not a hint, you think ?
     
  7. Often the word ‘he’ will be used while referring to a female, provided those listening understand who you’re speaking about it isn’t necessary to trouble yourself (at least in the version I speak this is common). Come, mek I tell uno all bout dis ting heh.

    I was going to guess the Bermudas, from the BE and the language...and the part about "why I am there" suggested jim was someplace other than home. :uhh:
     
  9. Gokul,
    timejim does clarify "where I Be" with "am at". You may be correct to suspect a hint but I be tinkin dis jus da weh he deh tahk.
     
  10. Na true u de talk, eh? (You are speaking the truth, are you?)
     
  11. mebbe no so inna de high places, but waht part me de come frum tis so.

    (Maybe not so with the better educated, but us poor folk often speak so)
     
  12. Na so! (Absolutely!)
     
  13. Ye mon !

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Ah, Gokul, you could be right, BE could also be a hint about Bermuda. I guess now we have to wait for timejim to come back and tell us if either of us guessed right :grumpy:

  20. I can use my cell phone to access and post message in this forum.
    A friend told me that sometimes when he was allowed to stay around with some of his known guys on the plane, he could also use internet.
