Where You From?

The answer to that question often depends on context. If I'm at a conference and think that the questioner wants to know from where I traveled, I'll say that I'm from Des Moines. If they're asking where I was born, I say Detroit. If they want to know where I call home, the answer is Virginia. But if they say, "Where you from?" suspicion dripping from every word, I assume that they either want to know why I have a southern accent--or why I don't. And then I have to say that I was born in Detroit, but lived most of my life in the south. And that I consider myself a southerner--southern by inclination. Which is why I was pleased to score 78% Dixie on this test, which I found on Mrs. Moody's site.

So, where y'all from?
