The backstory: There are a handful of towns in New Jersey with the same name and East, West, South, North, or South before the name (for example, near me there is North Plainfield, South Plainfield, Plainfield). On the interstate, the exit for the towns are simply marked “The Plainfields”. On today’s drive north to Springfield College ( a story for another day), there was a sign for Pecquannock. I had a comment.
Me: That sounds like the name of a town in New Jersey. In which case, there’d be a North, South, and West Pecquannock and the sign would simply say “the Pecquannocks.”
T: Or it’s a place where a Kennedy could dump a body.
Me: For when Chappaquiddick is full.
And then we laughed because that is the sort of thing that amuses us.
