Aaron Naparstek had heard one too many honks when a driver in front his apartment let out a long, loud honk. Aaron decided that if the honk was still blaring by the time he got to the refrigerator, retrieved a carton of eggs, and opened the window, then he deserved to be egged. That, he recalls, began what he termed a near-death experience that became the inspiration for honku.org.
Honku is a road rage anger management technique. The next time some jerk cuts you off or steals your parking spot, rather than succumbing to the rage, take a step back. Separate yourself from the moment and try to observe it with clarity and perspective. Then boil it all down into crisp and pithy 5-7-5 gem. That’s a honku.
