- When you get your first parking ticket?
You're parked in a metered spot. But you didn't notice the first Tuesday of the month there's no parking between 2am and 6am. Eh. At least you can pay online.
- When you hit a pothole big enough to take out your front tire?
(No pics. But it was dark and late at night in Medford. Coming around a corner. Wham!) Whacked the tire hard enough to put an (unrepairable) hole in its sidewall. $166.
Bonus points: when AAA tells you it's the third one on that pothole that night.
- A parking space right in front of the entrance for China Pearl on Sunday for dim sum.
When you realize the chances of find such a space in Chinatown is essentially the same as winning the state lottery.

How do you know when you're really in Boston?
I'm here in Boston for six months. I've been here since January. But at what point does it really hit home?
