Sometimes too high.

Squeeking under flooded bridges can be fun in a paddle craft or even small motor craft but that looks unplanned. Sort of the maritime equivalent of putting bikes on top of an SUV or minivan and forgetting to mind the clearance when entering a parking garage.

should be required, regardless of when (if) one was completed previously.

Storrow Drive doesn't go into Beverly, and Storrowing strictly means it happened on Storrow Drive. What it's called elsewhere is "going full retard".

From low beginnings behind the Esplanade, Storrowing has spread throughout the world. First they Storrowed in Boston, then in Quincy and Cambridge and North Carolina, and now they Storrow everywhere. They Storrowed trucks and busses and cars, now they Storrow boats, and someday they'll Storrow a blimp under the Golden Gate Bridge. As soon as they build a road and a bridge there, there will be Storrowing on the Moon. Storrowing forever!

...because it ORIGINALLY meant on Storrow Drive. It became a more general term when everyone started using it out of context. Probably no one wanted to say "Memorialed", "Soldiers Fielded", "Mass Piked", or my personal favorite, "Tobin Bridged", among other examples. The point is that, at one time, it strictly meant on Storrow Drive.

Another term used out of context for so long that most people forget its original context. And no, I'm not a Boomer LOL.

I prefer the term "doesn't know how to fucking drive" myself.

And that's kind of funny and serious at the same time. Funny that he got in the predicament, but serious for him as he badly needed to get out.
