how to park your karma

After driving around Bernal for forty minutes in search of parking, Quinn pulled up to the spot we were minding for her only to find a Pontiac poised and ready to crush Danny if he didn’t step aside. She got out of her Prius and said to the driver of the Pontiac: “If you’ve been looking longer than forty minutes, you can have the spot.”

Danny and I stared at each other in consternation.

The instant she said it, though, the car parked in the next spot along came to life and drove away. So, incidentally, did the Pontiac, leaving Quinn with her choice of two spots.

“I think the driver of the Pontiac was Jesus, come to test her,” I told Jeremy.

“Did she park across both spots?” asked Jeremy. “That’s what Eris would have done.”
