I sing the body electric

For context:

I am 33.
I have a BA in English Literature.
I lived within 25 miles of the Walt Whitman Bridge for 26 years.

Me to Dorothy circa 3 years ago: “Do you know how old I was when I realized that the Walt Whitman Bridge was named for Walt Whitman?”

Dot: “huh?”

Me: “I was like 16.”

Dot: giggle, escalating

Me: “And by 16, I mean last year. After reading it in the newspaper.”

Me: “Are you even able to breathe right now?”

I lived near a Walt Whitman Mall so I thought he owned a store.
