East Coast/West Coast Rap Wars

During my teaching introduction, I inform the students that I'm originally from the East Coast. After class, a student tries to strike up a conversation.

Student: "Where is the East Coast?"
Me: "The other side of the country."
S: "Oh, like New York and stuff?"
M: "Yeah, that area."
S: "Oh, I thought you meant the east coast of California."
M: "I don't even know where that would be."
S: "Yeah, I know!"

As an odd afterthought, it's probably not appropriate to represent an interaction with a student with S&M.

East side!
