Something on Saturday
Here's my "Something..."
But that was not my point. I have a friend who was born in Missouri. She went to college in Indiana. She's lived in Texas for 15 years. Yesterday, she called herself a Texan, and I'm ashamed to say, that bothered me.
If I move to New York, I will still be a Texan, not a New Yorker, right? I could move to California, but that definitely wouldn't make me a Californian. Is it terrible that I was a little offended that she called herself a Texan? Maybe that's my Texas pride. The food, the environment, the weather, the language - all are part of what makes Texas unique. I'm happy to share my "Texan" status with so many others who were born here, but it bothers me that someone who's spent only 1/3 of her life and doesn't embrace the culture would call herself a Texan. So, sue me, I guess! (just kidding)
Leave your "Something on Saturday" link in the comments. I'm looking forward to visiting you!
