I relocated to Texas back in the late 90’s and it was a bit of a culture shock having grew up in the Bronx, NY and going to a place called Texas City, TX. Texans are proud people and I guess the good people of Texas City wanted to make damn sure people knew they were in the state of Texas. All joking aside, the experience was good – I got to learn the second meaning of barbecue, took several trips down to the Gulf Coast, and eventually moved to Houston, which is probably the most non-Texan major city of all the Texas metros. It’s not to say that Houstonians won’t put on their boots and hat every now and then, but the little known fact is that many people living in Houston are not from Houston and this trend will only continue in other major cities like Dallas and Austin.
