You see, it’s not that we Chicagoans are extremely particular people; we just don’t consider it correct for someone from Naperville, Elgin, or Deerfield, Illinois, to say they’re from Chicago when they truly aren’t. You don’t hear people from some little town in California saying they live in L.A. or people from a small city in New York saying they live in New York City. You are not from Chicago; rather, you live near Chicago
