    Re: Bun in the oven

    Here in Maine, USA, there's a big distinction made between so-called natives and people "from away," also known as flatlanders, even if they're from Colorado or Nepal.

    It's not enough to be born here. You're not a Mainer unless you were conceived here. There's a saying: Just 'cause the cat had her kittens in the oven, that don't make 'em biscuits."
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
