The one question I hate answering, which everyone you meet inevitably asks, is "Where are you from". It seems like such an innocent question to the asker. Yet, it so complicated for me.
I was born in a suburb of Erie, Pennsylvania. I moved to Waco when I was 10. Lived there until I was 18 and went to college in Huntsville, Texas. Then moved to Conroe, TX which is I guess where I consider "home" because I miss it and all of my friends are there. We lived there 8 years and moved to Richardson, a suburb of Dallas until a year ago.
Even if they are asking it in a present tense, I don't know what to say. On weekends I'm now close to Tyler, Texas, but by weekday I'm in Houston.
If they are asking in a "where did you grow up" way, I don't know what to say, either, because I was in Pennsylvania halfway AND Texas halfway. When people ask it I generally say "That's a hard one". They will often come back and say "Well, where do your parents live". That's not so easy either. They lived in West Virginia the last 8 years, where I've only visited maybe 4 times. And now they are full-time RVers , so essentially they are homeLESS.
I guess I'm just from Texas. Maybe I can even narrow it down to East Texas. There.
