Today, I was called a "Potato" for at least the 30th time by people online for living in Idaho. I've lived here my whole life, I have yet to see a potato farm. None of these people has even left the East Coast. FML

My boyfriend actually calls me a potato as a strange but affectionate endearment.

It started out with him saying I have the focus/resilience of a potato, which made me laugh because of how ridiculous it sounded. Now he just says it all the time. It still makes me giggle for absolutely no reason. But it works, because he can extend it to "sweet potato" and "hot potato" too :)

Yeah I'm from Maine and people just assume that I eat lobster every day and see moose all the time when I've only seen a moose twice :p Stereotypes will never die, my friend, but you're better off than a state with the stereotype of marrying your sister/cousin/brother...

There are moose in Maine? I always think the cranberries when I think of Maine. I don't even know if cranberries grow there and have no idea where that thought came from. Stereotypes are pointless. That being said, I live in Illinois and I can walk 12 a mile in any direction and walk into a corn field. I live in a city.

86- that's kind of funny because I've lived in Canada my whole life, and the one and only time I ever saw a moose was the one time I visited Maine. Maybe if you come up to Canada you'll see one here :P
