I've noticed that people that meet me for the first time ALWAYS ask me one question..."So, where are you from?"
How would you answer that? I usually tell them the city in which I reside. That seems like a reasonable answer, right? But then I get the chuckle and they clarify, "No, where are you FROM," or "Where are your PARENTS from?" or, "Well, I mean, what is your background?" You may not realize how often I get that question, but seriously, hang out with me for a while, and you'll find it hilarious, too.
Enough about me. So, Where are YOU from?
