  • Well, you could do what 98% of people do when you ask them why they preferred one thing over another: "It sucks."
    Them: Why did you move from Florida to here?!

    You: Florida sucks.

    That'll quiet the meager curiosity of most people.

    You are what you think.
    • Well, I'll maybe use that with some people, and be slightly more tactful with others (like new neighbors). I'll see what reactions I get.

  • Well, did you move from Florida or to wherever-you-live-now?
  • Everybody always asks that becasue they're shocked that you would move to the area. I think it's a case of the grass-is-greener syndrome where everyone thinks where they live sucks (after a few years when the I've-just-moved-here-it's-great feeling wears off). Of course this means that if you plotted this trend as a curve it would prove that everywhere sucks. Or something.
    • Yup, I agree. The grass in FL is just as green, but much sharper and more crunchy :-) I know when I lived in CT I always liked it. I never took any of it for granted... maybe because I had lived in FL before (CT -> FL -> CT -> FL -> NY). I learned what I would miss when it was gone.

      On another note, I got to do a little hiking today. Felt GREAT to be out in the woods, and not sweating like a swine.
