Since moving North last year I've had the same conversation about 16,000 times.
Where are you from?
Well, I was actually born in Nebraska but I grew up in Arkansas.
How'd you end up in Arkansas??? they all ask, flabbergasted at the thought
Well, my parents were hippies...
And I mean that in every sense of the term. Although now they'd be called "Green". They built our first house, made their own clothes, grew their own food, smoked pot no matter what they say now ... They were Flower People without a commune.
