I grew up in southeastern New Mexico. Anytime I tell people where I'm from, I hear "I think I've been through there." "Really? Where were you going?" "Well I think I drove through there on the way to Albequerque." Which is no where near where I grew up. I almost reach for the duct tape when this conversation is starting, for I fear my head will explode!! :-o

I also get asked if I speak Spanish. Makes me wanna :fu !!

Let me enlighten LP.

This "New Mexican" was born in Texas. Besides, it's New Mexican, not new Mexican. Damn, I didn't realize that Jones, Smith, Johnson, Grey, King were Spanish names! :-o

So shouldn't they go back to Mexico....
Never lived there, why would I go back?

Don't all New Mexicans speak spanish?
Two years of Spanish in high school, barely remember any of it. Alot of good that did me!

HUm. I think they should get rid of all those state names that start with New. New York, New Hampshire, New Mexico. We could then call them Not, Not York, Not Hampshire, and NOT Mexico.

So in Not Mexico, english would be the native tongue. You see how much easier it is to distinguish it from Mexico now?
