Foreign Accent Syndrome

How's this for a bizarre medical condition?

It may be frustrating, but at least she's better off than the Norwegian woman mentioned in the closing paragraphs. Damn. Nothing like waking up sounding like the enemy... Now, of course, I wonder what a German accent sounds like in Norwegian.

I've been told that, when I attempt to speak any words in Spanish, my Russian overcomes it, and I sound like "a Cuban military advisor." Can't help it. 20 years of speaking Russian has screwed with my synapses.
