1. When in North Dallas, you all of a sudden feel like you have to wear makeup to the drugstore.
And buy a new outfit for the occasion.
2. You see girls in plaid and bobby socks, boys in khakis and blazers, and they are everywhere.
Dallas has so many private schools that most residents know which school a kid goes to just by the plaid pattern.
3. Flying in, it looks like a multicolored pancake as far as you can see.
There is not a hill, or even a bump in the road, in sight.
