Whenever I refer to someone from another city or state, I always tack on some sort of ending. For example, someone from New York is always a New Yorker. Who decides these rules known endings? Why am I a Michigander? Why can't be a Michiganian? Sometimes I like to think that there are unwritten rules. For example cities & states that end with the vowel "a" such as Atlanta & California become Atlantans & Californians....but then what happens if you are from Tampa? Bummer. States like Texas completely lose the last letter & get a new one to make Texans. Someone please enlighten me because I want to be a Michiganite....way cooler.
