Or I suppose for agonizing parental worry as you see this pattern appearing within your own family. Anyway, for me, this is because I am about to visit New York City, which is essentially the glitzy big sibling to Chicago, and all my Chicago feathers are already rumpled. We’re just as good! We just don’t like to talk about ourselves as much!
