Red face I feel really stupid!

I do not think of myself as stupid in anyway. I read a lot of things so that I know what is going on, especially medical stuff. I also learn new things quickly. I love learning new things.
You New Englanders are going to love this!!! We are watching the Pat's, so dh can tell my son, NAH NAH, if they lose, anyway, dh asked me where New England was, I said Massachusettes and he said that he thought it was Maine or Vermont. I looked it up, New England is actually 6 states!!
OMG, I did not know this. I guess I was asleep in History

Ok, GB, if you keep laughing that hard, your going to bust a rib!!


Why didn't any of you people tell me this?? I blame you

That is so funny!!!!!!!!!!!! It's so easy to do though!!!!! I guess no other region of the US is grouped together that way.

A friend asked her sister where the New York World's Fair was in 1968 (provided that date is right, which it probably isn't) and her sister said she wasn't sure, maybe Chicago

My fiance is an air traffic controller, and he came to Kansas from Mass, and he always talks about New England... and I had to ask him what the heck he was talking about too.... I didn't know it was actually 6 states though!!! I slept through history and geography... regretfully.

As a life long resident of New England, I am greatly insulted! A a matter of fact, if Texas ever tries to join the United States, I will fight it every step of the way!

Um, Andy?

I lived there for three years, and I don't think anybody told them, but they already DID join! (They just don't act like they know it yet!)

Ok, I have to admit that is pretty funny, but I'm from NE so I thought everyone knew the six states.

And here they are: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusettes, Connecticut, Rhode Island.
