@CA,
When someone says “I’m from Dallas” there’s almost always a pause, followed by “well actually I live in [insert name of Dallas suburb here]”
It might be Plano or Rockwall or Grand Prairie or Carrollton, but it’s easier to say you live in Dallas because you live in the Dallas area and nobody outside of the Dallas area knows where Rockwall is. I’ve had this conversation so many times that until I lived in Dallas myself I was convinced that nobody actually lived in Dallas proper.
