    Sorry you had to deal with that at formative ages. Good on you for persevering and becoming a teacher (I think - right?)

    Once.

    I was born in Houston, TX and my family moved to Fanwood, NJ when I was a 1 year old. We stayed in that house until I graduated college.

    No argument here. Some days, I can't even respect myself.

    Never, unless you count the time I ran away from home for about an hour and a half. Since 18, I've moved 13 times and I'm not done yet.

    I've lived off exit 100 since my 7th birthday.

    I moved once before my 18th birthday. from beautiful Bayonne, NJ to Avon by the Sea, NJ.

    GSP or 80, I went from Irivington to Rockaway on I 80.

    I still drive on I80 from time to time, just about 3000 miles west of where I grew up.

    I spent so many years with Exit 137 (from the South) and Exit 138 (from the North), that it would pain me to even consider those numbers could ever change. And that's despite not having set foot in NJ for about ten years.

    Some things are.....sacrosanct.

    I travelled the GSP for 4 and a half years from Exit 100 to Exit 153B and back, everyday. Hell.

    Leave it to New Jerseyans to think of highway exits as sacrosanct.

    It is definitely an NJ thing. Sometimes we just say where we live by the exit. That's all you need to say.

    The funny thing about my exit is coming from the north I can exit on 105, 102, 100A (now) or 98 and still get home at about the same time. But, it's 100A that it's known by.
