hey, Johnson here lol
yeah, i spent most of my life in minneapolis but i was born in new york. so does that make me Midwestern? bro, I dunno, good question!!! one could say that i’ve fully adopted Midwestern ideals and mannerisms so therefore i’m midwestern, but yeah, like, I dunno, since some of these notions are universal—where does Midwesterness begin and where does it stop? by geographical borders or the borders of our mental states? the Applachians or our attitudes? idek
plus, even if my character was born and raised in like, Northfield, what would that mean to you? would that allow you to more fully project a connection onto this set of hockey bros who don’t exist? would you feel more connected to me? would you know me? like seriously tho—epistemologically?
if it comforts you on an abstract level—yes i’m midwestern.
lol just answering your question with more questions haha
but yeah just stuff I think about in the crease. 🙂
