My FWH and I are doing well, 3.5 years out, come a very long way. But there is one really annoying thing. I know you all give great advice, and an even better sense sense of humor-- so I am looking for a silly light hearted way to deal with this annoying trigger.
See the problem is that OW has an unusual last name. There is a street by the same name that snakes all over Houston. (Pun intended!) I go to Houston a lot for work and fun. I don't know my way around too well, but I know the freeways and major streets, but OW street surprises me all the time. Each time, it is yucky trigger. Whether it is an exit from the highway or the street where my favorite sandwich shop is, it leaves a lump in my stomach. I need to associate that street name with something else. Any ideas?
Or not, because I am sure it is against some law and I don't want to advocate breaking any laws, but it's just a thought.
I am sure just by reading this, next time you see the street you will think of it differently.

Do not back up. Severe tire damage.
My apologies in advance to anyone named Patsy on here. I am sure YOU are a lovely Patsy! And I also recommend not saying it aloud if you have kids in the car, as it is kind of close to bullying dialogue.
But, honestly, I blocked it all out of my mind and I still drive by it every day. It doesn't bother me much any more.
Bumpy in places, cracked, worn with age and use...yeah, some parts might appear to be in good shape, but the weaknesses will always eventually appear.
And all because just anyone can take a ride on her.
