Actual dialogue from meeting my downstairs neighbor for the first time:
HER: … because I grew up in the Southwest.
ME: Where in the Southwest did you grow up?
HER: Well, New Mexico.
ME: Where in New Mexico?
HER: I tell people Albuquerque because that’s a place they’ve heard of, but it’s actually not very close to Albuquerque.
ME: Oh, where’s that? I might have heard of it.
HER: I was born in Gallup.
HER: It’s actually—
ME: I was raised in Gallup.
Looking back, I didn’t ask her enough questions about it, and seeing as I’ve lived here for almost nine months and had only seen her once through the window, I probably won’t get the chance. But hey, pretty wild, right?
