Oh, THAT Road

A lot of times when people give me directions, they assume I know road names. 99 out of a 100 times, I really don't.

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.


  1. I know what you mean. The thing with me is that I don't seem to accept that I just don't know the names and I say whichever road comes to my head...Of course, I get a lot of strange looks in return. Ha ha.

    1. Hahaha I usually just pretend to know what people are talking about , nod my head, and clarify a billion times until they realize I don't know anything. xD
