Everybody knows about coming up with nicknames for neighbors you have never met.
I have long assumed that virtually everyone does that.
But do you also employ personalized place names in your family?
I'll give you an example.
It's about 10 streets away from our home. But if someone told me that there was some sort of minor emergency and my wife needed me to meet her at "the Cat Block," I would know right where to go.
Do you have nicknames for certain places in the Spokane area?
