Our son works at a restaurant on Boylston Street as a parking valet. Recently a member of the Boston Celtics pulled up in a very fancy, fully equipped sport utility vehicle. As he got out and handed our son the keys, the very tall basketball player said, “Don’t mess with the seat.” Our son, who is of medium height, countered: “You’re 6-9. I can’t drive it like this. Let me at least move the seat up.” The star replied, “Well, OK, but just a little.”

As Right as Rain

On a recent dreary Saturday morning, our 4-year-old daughter, Alina, came into our bedroom and asked us whether it was Sunday. We told her no, that the next day would be Sunday. She replied, “Oh, then today must be Rainy Day.”
