19th Street Meanderings

Just when I thought I had an understanding and acceptance … I was driving Brandon to work the other day traveling northbound on Lamar—Brandon was listening to The Eagles and I listening to NPR. We drove past the ramp to enter 15th Street and Brandon abruptly looked at me and asked, “Why are you going 19th Street today?” There are many complex and interesting implications to that question, not the least of which is I had NO idea that Brandon knew the names of streets on rarely used routes around town. Or pretty much any streets. Or cared. Also, 19th Street was changed to MLK when Brandon was three years old. I loved that this happened. I will pay attention, more closely.
