In South Boston
From one Caught in Southie reader:
I want to share this great deed to balance all the horrible we see in the winter. ??Like many of my city-dwelling comrades above the 40th parallel, I steadied my haunches for the leap that would take me, with the grace of a three-legged gazelle, over the snow embankment, that last of the Snow Miser’s barriers between me and my car. ??Before I sprang, something caught my eye. A path had been hewn in the ice and snow,leading directly to my car door. With the trepidation of a veteran of our asinine wintertime parking rituals, I stopped and sniffed the air, was this a trap? Would I step into this clearing to have my ankle caught in a well-disguised bear trap? I threw cation to the wind and stepped forth…with ease. But who had completed this remarkable deed? A slip-smacking pervo watching me from afar? A reparation-minded punk ass who had vandalized my side view mirror mere weeks ago? Or was it really a kind neighbor?
Until proven otherwise I will believe its the latter. Warm people make the cold months bearable. Thank you!
Pay it forward, Southie!
