Friday Flashback: Street Names

Welcome to Flashback Friday.
Each Friday I write about something from my past. Sometimes it's meaningful, sometimes it's nonsense. But it all has purpose. Our past moments, however significant, have all been a part of the story of who we are...so why not tell it!
Join me each Friday as I announce a topic and then we write about it and look back to see how far we've come.

This entry concludes my Dear Diary series.

May 16 1999

Today my sister Lori Ann and I were driving to the Convention Centre in EauClaire, WI.
Suddenly she said, "Oh! That's stupid! Look a street called 'Wisconsin' Street. We are in Wisconsin."
"No, that's not stupid. We live in Ontario and our town has a street called Ontario street."
"Yeah, your right. I guess it would only be stupid if it was called Eau Claire Street."
"Yeah."
And then we stopped at a red light and saw that the street we were stopped at was called "Eau Claire Street"
we nearly peed we were laughing so hard.

How about you? Link up and tell us what memory 'Street Names' invokes in your mind.

That's a cute story. I like this idea, of posting something from your past every Friday. I'm thinking about joining you. :)
