Cody enjoys going places the majority of us wouldn't think twice about. One of them being parking garages. He prefers to call them parkades. Because we spent a lot of time there, he likes to reminisce about the parking garage at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland.
The growing town where we now live built its first big parking structure a few years ago. Chase and Casey (my other sons) take Cody there periodically. The three of them drive to the top level, park, ride the elevator and then leave. It bugs Cody a bit that there's not an attendant at this garage to take tickets or money. Something about rolling down the car window and interacting with a ticket taker excites him.
Parkades not only make me think of Cody, but of my favorite episode of Seinfeld "The Parking Garage". If you haven't seen this, or even if you have, you might want to click on this link, watch the clip and read the synopsis. It's pretty amusing.
