My daughter XY is six, about to turn seven. Parenting a child of this age means a nonstop stream of opportunities to see novelty through her eyes. On the other hand, at my age, completely novel experiences are pretty unusual.
We’re about to have one.

I sold my car this week.
I walked over to a neighbor’s house, dropped off the keys and the vehicle, and walked home with a wad of cash. I’ll miss my red 2006 Toyota Prius. It was the longest I’d ever owned a car. It was my sixth and favorite of the bunch, a fitting farewell to what car ownership used to represent to me.
