20. True. The weird thing is that I do not consider myself a "Southerner".
I just live here. I'm a Westerner/Midwesterner/Rocky-Mountainer by being raised in Kansas and California and Colorado.

Ok...I'll admit....I've been in NC now long enough to call myself, and start to think of myself, a North Carolinian. I doubt however that most people here would accept that outside of my lovely spouse and her family.
