On moving day, past gets packed away at Cabrini
Miss Parker is the last tenant on the last day of the occupied life of 1121 N. Larrabee St., Cabrini-Green, Chicago. It's Friday morning and, though she's been ordered to be out by nightfall, she cannot pack one more gadget or romance novel into one more box until she's squirted Dove into the kitchen sink and washed those unused dishes. No way is she moving into a new place with plates stained by cockroaches.
