|Reading Huckleberry Finn

I'm reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. It's pretty good. Continuing in my never-ending efforts to become as annoying as possible, I've adopted several speech mannerisms from Huck. These include using "powerful", "considerable" and "tolerable" as adjectives that modify other adjectives:
- "I was powerful hungry by lunchtime"
- "She fixed it up considerable pretty"
- "Sapient is tolerable boring"
And saying "I reckon" a lot.
Normal person: What's up a---?
Me: I reckon I'm powerful hungry! And considerable certain I'm needing some cornpone!
Normal person: (backs away slowly)
