Showing your CA ID to non-Californians makes you very illustrious. I usually get comments like...
"Ooohh, Califoooornia. Cool." or "Wow, you're from California?!"
Secretly, in my head, I'm thinking, "If you only knew. I spend more time in traffic than I do in the shower. It's crowded, it's loud, its...its..."
But after I see their curiosity and there sort of jealousy, my thoughts immediately change to, "Yea, that's right. I live in Los Angeles. It's freaking incredible."
(P.S. -- A friend reminded me of THIS VIDEO that says it so well.)
