September First

Once upon a time, I lived with a number of roommates in the Brighton MA area. It was a really fun time and I’m very glad for the experience. I don’t know if they’d necessarily agree.

For those of you not from around here, September 1 is the day that just about every lease in the Boston, Cambridge, Brookline area starts. Everyone needs to get up really early and get all their junk out of their apartment. They need to figure out something to do with all their stuff for a few hours while they try to track down their landlords to pick up their new keys. This means that it’s utter mayhem to be driving in the city. There are angry and stressed out people all over the sidewalks.

For nostalgia’s sake, a buddy and I wandered around Allston today to see the mess. What a mess it was. Check out the guy who hit a fire hydrant.
