You know how when you go to the zoo, no matter what time of year, it smells and feels like the pavement is melting underneath you? That humid smell and feeling, like the world is just dripping. And no matter where you go, it's there. Yet the moment you walk out of the zoo, it's gone. Why is that? And why is it that everyday when I walk out of my apartment building I feel like I'm walking around a zoo, yet without all the stellar exhibits and animals making noises at 5 year olds? That's D.C. In a nutshell, of course.
Thank you to my cubicle buddy, JoAnn, for hauling my ass home after work so I didn't have to wait (and possibly miss) for the bus. Work went till midnight tonight, and that doesn't comply with my "I need to get home on the bus" schedule. She also informed me that people call this area "Grover Bark" because of all the young folk with dogs. I'm amused.
