How Boston Are You?
You're pretty Boston. You're as Boston as having to go to the hospital after falling in the Charles.
You're wicked Boston. As Boston as this girl's tattoo.
You're DEEP Boston. You're as Boston as the bit of cobblestones poking through the streets.
Correction: A previous version of this post spelled Plimoth Plantation the way the town is spelled now, not the old-timey way. We apologize to all pilgrims for the error.
