Lazy days of winter

I’m going to spill another secret about Petworth: we have the greatest off street parking in the district. I used to live in Cleveland Park and if I found a spot within a 20 block radius of my apartment I was ecstatic. I mean I would be so happy I’d be near tears, jumping, dancing, praying…you get the point. Now, that I’ve been living in Petworth I’ve gotten so, so spoiled. There used to be an unwritten rule that the “spot” in front of your house would be left open for you and more times than not it is. But this morning I had to park two houses away. Two houses away is all of about 30 feet. And I was like damn! This is bullshit, what the hell is going on here… I’ve calmed down now and remember what it is used to be like and now I’m smiling. I’m cold but I’m smiling.
