Questions from 'Burghers

I had a coworker from another section of my department ask me today how long I’d been here. It’s been a little more than three months since I started my new job, and it feels like I started two weeks ago. Time flies!

He also asked where I lived, and I told him in Upper Lawrenceville. This led him to ask what he really meant to ask, which was if I was from here. This was phrased as, “But, you’re not from here, are you?” No, sir, I am not. After I told him I was from the Dallas area, he got really quiet and deadpanly asked, “Are you a die-hard Cowboy fan?”
This seems to be the natural series of questions I always get from ‘Burghers.
However, even after I admit I’m not a Cowboys fan {rest assured}, they are equally appalled that I’m “not really into sports,” either.
Sometimes you just can’t win!
