Now I know that I should probably learn the names of roads in the area around my house... but who really has the time for that? Why can't people just say, take the road with the ice cream store, take a right at the light with the weird purple sign in front of it, and then drive until you see the building with the flashy lights. You'll be looking for the building right next to that one. I mean, isn't that a bit more descriptive than: take Bluboflaven Rd. to Jummajacob Pike and then turn right and Northeast Southwestup before driving along Butterbearflu Dr. where you'll find the Ahahahahaha Building that was acting so elusive on your GPS.
Clearly those aren't the names people tell me... but that's pretty much what they all sound like to me.
It's like I have some kind of filter in front of my face. Directions enter the filter, and weird alien sounds come out the other end. I'm sorry. I don't understand alien.
Extremely scientific drawing of my brain.
