Fork in the Road

Thank you Indiana for keeping it real. I’m not sure who exactly is allowed to choose the names for cities but I have to complain about their lack of imagination. Colors with a ‘burg’ or ‘town’ stuck at the end of it? Haven’t you heard of Spunky Puddle, Ohio or Monks Hammock, Louisiana? Obviously the people who named those were enlightened.

The  sign makes me think of the Dr. Seuss classic, “The Sneetches”, which was later made into a crowd-pleasing production by my seventh grade drama class. I gave a harrowing performance as Narrator #1. Just like the star-bellied Sneetches and the Sneetches with none upon thars learned at the end of the book, let us remember that “no kind of Sneetch is the best on the beaches.”
