Moved to New Orleans • Typewriter Poetry
The first question people usually ask me after we've been talking for a while is "where are you from?" "I'm from LA," I always say, though now that I'm in Louisiana I wonder if I should be abbreviating it as "L.A." in my head. Whether it's my clothing, demeanor, accent, or the fact that I use "dude" more than the average person should, everyone always nods their head in immediate understanding when I declare I am from California.
