Well, so much for that phrase of his life, he thought as he dropped the cut remains of his parking pass into the trash can. No more riding the bus to and from the parking lot. Now he could park directly behind his work, a much better solution to his way of thinking. Of course, he was paying a price for the privlidge, but that was just the way of his world. At least, his current world.

Cutting apart his pass has been freeing. Made him want to slap on a backpack with a change of underwear and some change and head off to explore the world. He wouldn’t, of course. He was much too tamed for that kind of silly wildness, but the brief flash of longing had definitely been there regardless. So much so that when he came across his backpack that weekend, he cleaned it up, packed it light, and left it is the trunk of his car. He’d never use it, but….. just in case.
