Three-story 3br near lik 12th and Spring Garden maybe

Maya and Vanessa were once tiny babies. Which is to say, when I met them they were little baby sixth-graders on the bus on the way home from school, and I was a big high-schooler. (Actually I met Vanessa when she was actually a toddler.) We're all members of the diaspora (we grew up in Mt Airy/Gtown/Roxborough). Delightful. I was friends with their older siblings. But now they're all grown up and renting houses and then moving somewhere else and becoming doctors and starring in the Vagina Monologues. Ah, the markers of adulthood.... The apartment they're offering is amusingly close to the school to whence we commuted in our youth.

Wait, did I tell you what happened on the commute? This is important. Luke and I, the high schoolers, would board the bus and Maya and her friends would have saved us the best seats. Luke and I were King and Queen of the bus. (On Tuesdays we were Jesus and Mary; Luke has always been fascinated with Christianity. I just went with it.)
