1. Where are you from?
    I don't know how to answer this question. It makes me anxious. I grew up in lots of places and New York is home but I'm always a little homesick for London and DC and Mumbai, does that help?
  2. No but where are you really from?
    Uh. My answer doesn't change just because you said really.
  3. Where are your parents from?
    Where are *your* parents from? Seriously y'all. So many better questions to ask.
  4. Did you grow up speaking English?
    People do this too often. It is never okay. Please just don't.
