In Which a Dose of Perspective Puts Me Right in the Middle of the Road.
Sometimes when I go places, I feel a little self-conscious about my car. It's kinda new (2008) and compared to what else might be in the grocery store or City library parking lot, and kinda fancy (Honda Accord!). Today, I had to go to the Far West End, the richer part of town. I felt self-conscious about my car. It's not really that new, it's way smaller than some of those mammoth SUVs, it's really not that expensive a make, and it lacks private school bumper stickers. Travel is so broadening.
