abstract butterfly

misread lines

Perhaps Shakespeare meant that "parking is such sweet sorrow". When one is looking for a space, the
world is full of possibility. One gets giddy at the idea of the perfect spot at a meter already filled with quarters. But then it all becomes a matter of parallel perplexity and 2 hour limits.

Similarly, "digression is the better part of valor", at least in almost every family I know. The skilled change of subject not only prevents ugly situations, but also permits fascinating conversation.
