The District Is Filling Up!

I ran an errand at lunchtime today, and I have to say, the District of Columbia is filling up. With people. People from the hinterlands. People from flyovercountry. People who don't know to stand right, walk left, who stop right inside the Metro turnstiles (and the Metro doors!), people with luggage and maps and . . . egad, people! GET OUT OF MY WAY!

You wonder why locals are rude. I no longer do.

Of course, I still have that Midwestern friendliness to strangers. And we need the tourist dollars. So come, people, come . . . and spend, spend, spend. Ask me for directions. I know the best way to get where you want to go.
