Tales From the City

City kid, through and through

A stroll through the neighborhood with Grandma.

When my daughter was 2, she and her out-of-town grandmother took a stroll in our neighborhood. Soon my mother-in-law realized she was lost and, not expecting an answer, asked out loud, “Now, how do we get home from here?” Rachel, without hesitation, answered, “Don’t worry, Nana, just call a cab.”
