A woman named Rachel just got engaged. What did she do next? Visit Franktuary. Seriously. I can see her enjoying a veggie dog right now.
It’s sort of like when you win the Super Bowl and then proclaim that you’re going to Disney World, only better:
Announcer: “Rachel, you just got engaged. What are you going to do now?”
Rachel: “I’m going to Franktuary!”
Well, there was no announcer (this time), but aside from that this is a true story. Let’s make it a Pittsburgh tradition!
In other news, five years ago I wrote about a woman named Julia Flowers in this very space. This weekend I discovered an apartment complex named Julia Gardens in Newark, NJ. Alas, I do not actually know Julia Flowers. I only once saw her name in the program for a Schenley High School play. Regardless, I think we can all agree that there needs to be a Julia Flowers in the Julia Gardens.
