When we first moved to Los Angeles, we lived in a cramped apartment down the block from the YMCA and a Chinese food place. I had my own room on the second floor and used to sit on the windowsill and spy on the neighbors. One girl had a potbelly pig that she used to lead around on a leash. I was really jealous and asked my parents for my own pig. I never got one.
