I think we all have our little odd obsessions, or just things we like in general, that no one really quite understands except you! For example, Evelyn seems to have a love for weather, especially tornados and tornado warnings, etc. I listen to her talk about it, but I never quite fully understand the interest and excitement.
I am this way with bridges. You know...like the ones you drive on? I mean sure, some can be a bit plain and boring, others short and not much excitement. But SOME of them, especailly some I have noticed in my area, are very tall, long, interesting design they are made, or they even have a nice view, like if it's above water or something! My mom on the other hand, kind of has a fear. Not of all of them, but ones that are above water for sure. That's why Paul held her hand going over one bridge haha! But I have a love of some of them, despite thier reputations. I shall now talk about some of them below. Thanks for reading! :D

My fave bridgesEdit
1.) 8th Street Bridge. Well this one HAS to be my favorite one! Also formally known as the Albertus L. Meyers bridge, it's here in Allentown. I almost never EVER get to go on it! My mom says that Paul took us on it, and I was like, "HE DID?? It was dark I couldn't tell! I SO would have treasured that more!" I was more concerend if we were going towards a certain someones house, I had no idea we were on my fave bridge! Ever since I read that when it opened in 1913, it was the highest and longest concrete bridge in the world. The WORLD! Right here in my town...I thought that was so cool. I think it's a beautiful piece of history. My friends don't always seem to agree. They say, "Why do you like it? It's the EIGHTH STREET BRIDGE! People kill themselves on it!" I say, "Yes I know that. Makes sense if you WANNA die! But you don't understand it's a nice historical thing we have here." I love it. I don't care. I always beg my mom, "PLEASE take me on the bridge!" I guess I gotta ask Paul again, haha!
2.) Tilghman Street Bridge. This one I go on quite quite frequently. [I know I said quite twice..ahh now 3 times lol] My mom drives me on this one. Also Margaret has taken me on it...I have even walked across it. Yeah this one is nice too! I also think in a way it looks like a mini 8th Street Bridge! Aww it had a kid! LOL JK but it's my 2nd fave bridge. Even the other day I called my mom on my cell on the bus to let her know where I was and I said, "We're on my 2nd fave bridge!" :D
3.) Tunkhannock Viaduct. This one is in PA too! Also known as the Nicholson Bridge, it closely resembles the 8th Street Bridge, too! I do not think I have ever been on it. but from the pictures I have seen of it, it looks pretty to me!
4.) Hill To Hill Bridge. One I did not even THINK of until now! It's in Bethlehem, I have traveled it quite a lot. It is a concrete arch bridge, (my fave type of bridge) In fact, in order to get to the hospital I was born in, you have to cross it!
