Well, it sort of makes sense. I have Mid-western in me and I have never been to the mid-west. I grew up in Kenya, spent some formative pre-college years in rural North Carolina, went to college in Pennsylvania, lived in DC for for 8 years, and in Maryland just outside DC for 11 years. Though really DC and Maryland are pretty Southern/Dixie not yankee at all. People can't usually tell where I'm from by listening to me though talking to people from certain regios tends to bring those accents to the top of my tongue.
