X Marks the Parking Spot
Local construction recently caused my driveway to be inaccessible for five days. During that timespan, I battled over the limited number of parking spots in our area with my similarly-disadvantaged neighbors.
However, I was fairly sanguine about the situation. It harkened back to a period when the use of my car was predicated on the whereabouts of the tenant who lived upstairs in my building.
