Why does no one believe that I've lived in five states (other than slitterst, but he's only saying that because he's purposely going against what he thought originally)? Seth's lived in seven states, I think. So why is five so unbelievable?

I don't know about other people, but I assume it's because they're not military brats...I myself have lived in ... California, Florida, South Carolina, Guam, Washington State, New York State...which is fives states and one territory.

Actually, I'd also have to say I've visited the state of "Griffindorf" (or however it's spelled.)

well, yeah, that played a role, but I didn't move as much as most military brats that I knew... and Seth wasn't a military brat but moved more than I did.

Given that you just pointed out you are a military brat, it's believable. I've just been busy doing real work, so I haven't updated my responses.

But Seth wasn't a military brat and he moved more than I did! Is it really that unusual to move a lot?

Let's see:

CT
MD
NY
MA
VA

Doesn't see that odd to me. I've lived in 5 different states, too.

Took me a minute to figure out that you were talking about the states I'VE lived in and couldn't figure out when YOU had lived in CT or VA! (or MA for that matter).

Right.

NY, NJ, MD, WI, and CA for you. Is that it?

I am better traveled than you. I've lived in more countries than you have. Just not a lot of states.

Hey... didn't you just spend summers in NC? That doesn't count!

I don't think 5 states is so odd. I've only lived in two (TX, MA) -- well OK, 3, if you count DC -- but we moved a lot when I was a kid. We may have moved around within the same city for the most part, but we traipsed all over town. My dad would get restless every 2-4 years and buy another house. My mother's nearly as bad. I grew up thinking it was weird to live in the same house for years and years -- not necessarily bad, but weird. So anyway, if we'd been in the Northeast where the states are smaller, I can easily imagine this sort of thing happening.

Wait. Don't you live in GA now? So doesn't that make three?

oh, and for purposes of this discussion, we'll count DC

Right, but you dilly-dallied in answering my poll and therefore you didn't get acknowledged when I wrote this post. So there. And yes, you got it right.
