According to the recent ad campaign by Chicago Public Library, several other things I have to do to be a "true" Chicagoan are:
- Sox or Cubs, choose one.
- Partake in deep dish pizza.
- Top my hot dogs with mustard, onions, relish, a dill pickle, and a tomato. No ketchup allowed.
- Have a CPL card.
The clearest "true Chicagoan" sign of all: I've been reminding myself a lot lately that a Chicago summer makes this winter/pseudo-spring worth it.
