- use both the first and last name of someone
- be named after a woman
- be named after a Katie
Maybe there are lots of streets named after women but using only their last name and no one ever realized?
My wife does feel terrible right now but more just about being an orphan than not being there when her mom died. She was with her for WEEKS before she actually passed away so plenty of chances to say goodbye.
Remember those tiny electronics stores you'd see in big cities? They'd have like a huge window in the front and they'd cram as many different pieces of merchandise as they possible could into it. And it would be a total hodgepodge of alarm clocks, boom boxes, stereo speakers and random shit like door bells or toy robots. Lots of stuff on sale. Huge eye catching price tags all over the place. That type of store was a whole vibe. (Maybe they still exist in NYC? Can't remember the last time I saw one.)
She went 15(!) days without food or water. My wife and her family kept insisting on being there beside her the whole awful time. But then yesterday my wife finally hit her limit and drove back to Decatur and that's when she died. So we're only six weeks into annus horribilis and my wife has lost both of her parents already.
