In the middle of all the comings and goings of various family members, from and to various parts of the globe, a minor mircale of sorts went unnoticed. I can now parallel park* like I have been doing it forever. It is nothing short of a miracle for someone who hates driving and parking in cities as it invariably involves this tricky maneuver. That or some dormant gene which ditcates a precise kind of hand, feet and eye coordination has suddenly expressed itself. Needless to say I am quite thrilled with myself.
