On September 22, 2012, I smashed the crap out of a car. I tore off the side mirror and beat the hood mercilessly. And it felt great. It was my first time experiencing (PARK)ing Day, and it was a turning point for me. This made-up holiday was invented by urbanists to take a day out of the year to plug a meter at a parking spot, and instead of filling the place with a car, fill it with people.
