Qotd 2/9-2/10

The "I'm Freezing" thread got me thinking...Where were you born?

Like I said in that thread, I was born in Phoenix, AZ (or at least a suburb nearby)

I was born in a little town in Mississipi called Flowood. Not the little town I lived in but I guess the closest hospital.

Rhode Island. Woonsocket was the town but I always feel funny getting specific about RI. Whenever anyone asks me where in RI I'm from I always get confused by that and usually respond "Um, all of it?" It's so small, it's barely bigger than my county I live in now!!!

I'm from Wendell, NC. Which, if any of you watch TruTV is where Lizard Lick towing is located and filmed. DH watches that show and I'm always amazed at the fact that those people were my neighbors. The people they tow - not the actual people themselves.

Embarrassing! LOL

I'm not sure of the WAY back story...but I think my dad spent time there as a child. My older brother was born here but my uncle still lived there so they moved back there for some reason. Then when I was 6 months old they came back here (thank goodness!). My uncle still lives up there and is a slum-lord. LOL. My dad went up there for many years when I was a child and worked as an electrician at Suncor.

I always say I'd have been a MUCH different person had I grown up there. That place is a whole different world!
