Today was the first day in months that there was a slight hint of Spring in the air. Mabye it was psychological because I knew it was March 1st.
Anyway with Spring come the Vespas - and my jealously of them. They are the best way to get around Forest Hills and make a trip from AQUA to Trader Joe's as cool as a trip to a Queens supermarket can possibly be.
I don't know where they're kept in the offseason or how people keep them from being stolen, but people on them seem to get around faster than Forest Hills cars, and parking is not an issue. Perfect.
However I haven't seen one yet this season. Once I do, I'll know it's really Spring.
