Did you even claim a land as your own? Jen did.
No, she didn’t stick a flag in it and proclaim, “I name this land Jennifer Land!” But, it our family understood it was her land.
While driving on I84 East, towards Connecticut, there is a giant sign that says “Welcome to Connecticut.” Now, coming back on I84 West towards New York, there is also a sign that says “Welcome to New York.” However, the two signs are not in the same location on the highway. They are about 100 yards apart.
You may be asking yourself, “So, what’s your point?” Well my dear friend, the point is that Jennifer noticed this gap, and pondered what state she was in while driving through that 100 yard gap; New York or Connecticut. As a result, she declared that she was in Jennifer Land, and that it was hers.
Whenever we drive to Danbury, we always say, “I’m in Jennifer Land!” and then a few seconds later, “I’m leaving Jennifer Land!” She always said there were signs there, but you couldn’t see them. I wonder if I went and physically put up signs, if the two neighboring states would respect the laws of Jennifer Land, and keep them up.
The beautiful and scenic area of Jennifer Land resides between the “Connecticut Welcomes You” sign on I84 East, and the “Welcome to New York” sign on I84 West. This land vastly stretches for approximately 100 yards, and is home to grass and shrubbery.
I was driving to Connecticut today, and driving through Jennifer Land made me feel like she will always be here, even of only for 100 yards.
I am submitting the definition of Jennifer Land to Urban Dictionary, so I hope it gets published.
