Let’s make this one more fun.
The New York Times recently published a little quiz that can tell where you grew up based on your answers to questions regarding the words and phrases you feel comfortable using.
You can see below how the quiz nailed where I grew up in Western New York. I think it’s because I grew up wearing “sneakers,” eating “subs” while drinking a “pop,” and poking “potato bugs” just to watch them curl up into little balls.
You can take the quiz here. Let us know how it does. What are the specific words or terms that you believe helped to identify where you lived? Get a friend or family member who grew up in another part of the country and ask them to take the quiz. How did it go for them?
