A day trip to Santa Cruz, California.
There isn’t as much of an issue that some might think telling Texans I was born in California. Yet there is sometimes controversy when meeting other Californians. The question usually arises North Cali or South Cali? I was born in Los Angeles and if the person asking the question is from North Cali a response of “SoCal sucks!” in many cases follows. The people from these interactions have come disproportionately from the Santa Cruz area. A pretty town on the California coast.
My joke that Galveston was the Santa Cruz of Texas was under appreciated.
