9. Actually... all Mexican food
From mole to tacos, menudo to burritos, we've got it down.
10. Animals in captivity
Touch starfish. Ride the Skyfari. Feed butterflies. Let lorikeets land (and poop) on you. Our zoo/aquarium-related activities are just better than other people's. Plus, we've got pandas, polar bears, and Komodo dragons and stuff.
There're science-based reasons (including pollution, but hey, whatever!), that give us these especially purple/pink/blue/"#magical"/"#incredible" sunsets. Plus, there's the the whole palm tree/power line combo, the green flash, and piers and beaches from which to watch.
12. Not going to sports championships
Unfortunately, we are experts at this. Norv Turner is only partly to blame.
13. Coming back from vacation
"San Diego's not exactly a bad place to come back to", said everyone in Lindbergh Field at some point.
