Metro Surprisingly Nice This Morning

Metro pillar closeup For the first time in a while, my wife and I had a nice, fast, stress-free, seamless morning Metro commute to work. I think this is the first morning since two Fridays ago that there has not been a “we will hold here for two minutes” backup on the Red Line, “residual” delays on the Orange and Blue, or a jerky “train will move forward” series of stop-start arrivals at various stations.

It’s more than a bit sad that such flawless days on the Metro are becoming more the exception than the rule. Now I bet I’ve jinxed it and will have a hellish trip home tonight.

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
