"I'm a citizen of the world." No. I asked you where you're from. "East Islip" or "A little town you probably never heard of off the coast of Maine but I've lived on the Upper West Side for a while" or "My family moved around a lot, but I was born in London" would make me not roll my eyes so hard they almost hurt, not regret having asked, and not want to pretend I've just gotten a text that makes me realize, oh no, I'm so sorry, I'm late for a pressing appointment downtown. There's no shame in "Schaumburg."
