Finding myself on a map

My sister in law and I took a late evening walk with Little Guy in the stroller. We're in Atlanta visiting and the time change has thrown him off, so we thought a little stroll among the fireflies might help him feel ready for bed.

We stopped to say hello to her neighbor and I mentioned that I was visiting from Phoenix. He asked where I was from and I explained that I was born overseas, but had been raised in the south. He said oh and that I seemed like I was from the northeast.

So I'm from the south, live in the west, but sound like the north.

What exactly does that mean?

I'd take that as a compliment for sure!

it means he's from the south - Did I type that out loud? (disclaimer: this was said without malice as the typer just moved from a very conservative southern town and is feeling cheeky being back "up north"...
