For My Aunt

For years, all the way until at least my twenties, i fully believed that highway 99W ran in one direction, and highway 99E was just driving the opposite direction on the same road. After my mom stopped laughing, she was able to set me straight. I still believe nonsense naming like this is what led to my ongoing difficulty comprehending cardinal directions.

    Give me a good landmark any day. Cardinal directions are my bane. Also, long time no see! Welcome back.

      Thanks, stranger! I am all about landmarks. At least I live in Oregon and can vaguely say, Toward Idaho, Toward Washington, Toward California, Toward the Pacific.
