I like the analogy of this data structure to a parking lot quite a bit, and will likely use it while teaching the data structure.
I’m not sure I like using the term ‘lot’ in speech. Maybe `garage` or `park`?

Instead of speaking about where to put a Car, we could speak of where to put other things that have a similar layout. Perhaps a place that holds animals? Then we could have a durable place to put horses. A stable_stable.
