No.

That was Carrie Underwood’s response when we asked her if her hometown has named a street after her. She said they haven’t, and she’s glad. Carrie thought a street with her name might be a little weird.

Carrie Underwood Boulevard. Has a nice ring to it.

I’m weird about street names. Kinda like I’m weird about not sitting in restaurant booths. Something about rips in the cushions freaks me out.

When Greg and I built the home we live in now, I had to pass on the first place we considered building. It was located on…

PAWTUCKET DRIVE.

I know it sounds silly. But, I quickly pictured myself giving out my address when asked.

My address? 477 Pawtucket Drive.

Nope. Couldn’t do it. The builder got a chuckle out of that one.

Even better, my sister was giving me directions to her house when she first moved in. She said, “You’ll turn on THAT STREET.”

“What street?,” I asked.

THAT STREET.

Turns out, THAT STREET is the name of THAT street.
