Ok, so I have a question:
How does the whole “generation” thing work? I’ve always understood that I was third-generation: ie. my grandparents came over from China (gen 1), my parents were born in the US (gen 2), as was I (gen 3).
It has recently come to my attention that I am only second-generation in that the first-generation folks were my parents, since they were the first ones born in the US.
Which is it?
(Make your response good. I’ve got $20 riding on this. If you say ‘3rd gen,’ I’ll cut you in.)
