i say i'm from St. Louis though i never lived in the city and the city is somewhat fucked up compared to the burbs where i grew up.

again - i'm not claiming to be from the city. i mean 'St. Louis' as shorthand for 'St. Louis Area'.

same w/Detroit. 'Detroit' can mean the city proper or the metro area.

i have a homie from Troy who says she's from 'Detroit' in casual conversation and if ppl want more detail she tells them she's from Troy. no one here cares and we all understand that 'Detroit' can mean the metro and not just the city.
