Where do I live? I don’t know.
I could launch into a lengthy response, but I might bore you or make you think that I’m showing off. So I opt for simplicity and choose a response based on one of the following:
- Where are the majority of my material possessions located right now?
- Where do my online accounts say my permanent address is right now?
- Where have I spent the majority of my time in the last month?
If you asked me where I live in the past year, I may have told you New York, Colombia, Pennsylvania, or Chicago. If you continue to engage me a bit further, you may find out more details, come to your own conclusion and correct me. Oh, so you really live in [fill in the blank]. I didn’t mean to deceive you. I just didn’t know your criteria for belonging to a place.
