Stuttering Shell: What road are we on?

What road are we on?

The other day while driving home with the kids the traffic report came on the radio. After it was finished, Aidan asked me where Virginia Beach Boulevard was & if we were driving on it. I told him no, we weren't, and explained to him where it was. This is the conversation that followed:

Aidan: "Mom, are we on the Dam Neck?"

Me: "Yes, we're on Dam Neck Road."

Aidan: "Oh, this road is funny because it has two words in it - one that's a body part & one that's a bad word that kids shouldn't say."

Me: "Oh, really?"

Aidan: "Yeah, they shouldn't put bad words in names. It's not appropriate."

Ah, the mind of a six year old. 'Dam' isn't the bad word he thinks it is, but his point was well taken, though.

When my mom first met the man that would one day become my stepdad, he had a parakeet named Shithead. I was about 3 at the time, and of course, not allowed to say "the 'S' word", but it apparently was my favorite word to say...so OF COURSE all I wanted to talk about was his bird. One of my moms favorite stories to tell about me is the time I ran up to my grandpa and said, "Papa, guess what Brian's birds name is?" and my mom says at this point, she about had a coronary...and he said he didn't know, so I told him, "It's bad word with a head on it!"

Oh to be a kid again. Happy birthday, by the way. Mine is today. The big 25. 32 doesn't look so intimidating anymore. :)

We lived in Va Beach when we were younger and my sister & I always thought it was so cool that we could say 'Dam' when referring to Dam Neck Road. That and beaver dam - we thought we were hilarious! :)
