Under what circumstances would a jumpy Baba happily let her son run smack down the middle of the street? Block party!
Yes, Baba’s Day was all I might have wanted it to have been. That and more, on which I will expound later.
Meanwhile, predating Baba’s Day this weekend was: Block Party! Â We have some neighbors who, once they found how easy it was to block off the street ($15 and an affable city functionary who always seems to go: “Sure!”), couldn’t stop doing it. They’re moving soon, and I think one of the main criteria for their replacements needs to be a propensity to block car traffic from the street and encourage neighbors to exit their houses and get to know one another (again).
