The same sun, the same ocean, the same sky
The same sun, the same ocean, the same sky

We went to our neighborhood’s Fourth of July celebration today.  We met some of our neighbors.

One of them asked me what nationality I was.  I answered, “I’m American.  I was born in New Hampshire.”

His wife immediately changed the subject.

We all know what he was really asking.

I wish I had thought to append “just like you” to the “I’m American.”

In case you wondered, I’m American.
