When I’m on the road, people know! As people pass me, they tend to look into my window with a confused looked on their face wondering who that woman is. Some people honk; some people wave; then there’s other people who will text me out of nowhere; there's also a hand full of people who just facebook me, letting me know they passed me or I passed them.
Why such popularity on the road, you ask? I know what most of you are thinking… and no, it’s not because I’m a terrible driver, although my husband would probably tell you otherwise. It’s because of my crazy awesome license plate that lets you know that I'm driving! I mean… lets face it… have you ever heard the name Lyryn? I’m quite certain that there aren’t many Lyryns in this world and I’m pretty sure there aren’t any in Pennsylvania! (Feel free to challenge me on that)
In the past week I have been told by three different people (all from high school) that they either passed me or I passed them while driving. It’s funny… because they start by telling me that they weren’t sure that it was me, but saw the license plate and again, what other Lyryn do you know? You can’t see, but I’m rolling my eyes, people!
Side Note Comment: Have you ever heard the name Lyryn before?! My whole life I was challenged by other people that they knew Lyryns; but could never get me in contact with them. I never liked my name… but I always took pride in the fact that I was pretty much the only one. In all my research, I pretty much have come to the conclusion that name is quite unique.
I dare you… go ahead, Google my name. The only person you will find other than an anime character and a girl on facebook (whose birth name WAS NOT LYRYN) is ME! :) I mean, with a name like Lyryn (I bet you can’t even pronounce it and if you're now wondering it's Lear-in) I deserve to have some type of bragging rights, don’t I?! Look I don’t doubt that there aren’t any out there, but if you do know another Lyryn I would love to know how they got their name!
Anyway, I know that most of you who read this blog aren’t even in PA and will probably never see me on the road. However, if you are driving down 95 on August 15th anywhere between PA and North Carolina and see a red jeep with a license plate that says LYRYN feel free to honk, wave or if you feel so led you can give me one of those funny little stares because you will have passed the only “Lyryn”, the only one I know of at least! ;)
