more than a feeling

My mom went to Boston last month. For a highly educated intelligent woman...sometimes I am forced into an eye roll....

Me: "How was Boston, cold?"

Mom: "It was great. I had clam chowder, isn't it weird that they DON'T call it "Boston Clam Chowder,"...just clam chowder."

Me: "Why the hell is that weird, you're IN Boston for god's sakes. If you went to China, I highly doubt you'd go out for "Chinese food," they would just call it FOOD."

Mom: "Oh."

Start eyeroll now...

Yes, but if they know she's an outsider, they might give her Manhattan Clam Chowder as a joke.

Your mom is silly!
You should send her to Buffalo and tell her to order wings. Just wings. Not Buffalo wings. She'll be in Buffalo, and here they're just wings.

The thing you're writing is a big blunder.
