Random Commuter Observations - "Summertime, And The Living Is Sticky" Division

As Dee Cee settles into its traditional summah boil, I've been thinking about a couple of things on my walks from the Metro and back:

- I love the smell of fresh water on the sidewalks in the morning just after they've been hosed down. I also love the little burst of cooler air.

- A lot of guys simply abandon their suit jackets at this time of year. I can't do it. In the afternoon I'll usually carry mine slung over my shoulder, but I just can't get past the idea that not having one at all is Wrong.

- I almost regret not having A/C in my jeep. Almost.

- I'm more or less convinced that Metro has been shutting down the escalators at my stop in the afternoons just to get one more little dig in at passengers before they escape the system.

- Once again, I call on the Fed'ral Guv'mint to seriously consider my proposal that a summah capital be built somewhere up north and in the mountains.

Absolutely no to the cooler summertime Capitol. Instead, they need to take the a/c out of Congress, necessitating a 3 month summer vacation for our congressional idiots.
