People used to say, 'Go back to your country'. I used to reply, 'I was born round the corner'.
What does it mean to be born round the corner?
In other words "This *IS* my country. I was born very near to here."
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
