Growing up in Fort Worth, having lived in Denton, Dallas and Arlington, having visited (frequently all the cities within DFW and) Houston, Galveston, Corpus Christie, Padre Island, Brownsville, Austin, Bee Cave, Grandbury, Stephenville, Plano, Amarillo, Wichita Falls, San Marcos, Tyler, Weatherford, Longview, Waco and (of course) Texarkansas — each city sets itself apart from the rest. The sum of its parts, is what makes Texas such a great state.
I’ve never known another state to have such a vast, rivalrous, chivalrous, friendly but at times fiendish mythology of the neighboring cities within itself. Perhaps, I’ve never really known another state like Texas. Or maybe, I’ve never really looked hard enough, because — well… I’m from Texas.
Anyways, without further ado, enjoy the emoji Texan-take tweets from Bobby Blanchard (@bobbycblanchard) of The Texas Tribune:
God I love it, all of it. My only critique is that Denton’s emoji should be a Saxophone although an Eagle is fitting 🙂
