I’m From Just A Teensy Bit East Of Maine

I am part of an online art community. I think that it’s pretty obvious I’m English; it is even part of my online identity, including jokes about being an “English gentleman.” When someone asks me where I’m from, I assume they’re asking where in England and that they have some grasp of the country’s geography. I tell them I’m from Hampshire.

They ask me where in New Hampshire. I have to explain to them that Hampshire is a county in England.

A little while later, a different artist asks where I’m from. Remembering this event, I instead tell them I’m from the south of England.

They proceed to ask me where, specifically, in New England.

I started telling people I’m from the UK after that.
