Answer: Why, on Valentine's Day, of course!
Two weeks ago I received a text from Scottie the Hottie: What are you doing for Valentines?
'I'm single... nothing special. Maybe a movie. You?'
"Going to D.C. Want to come?"
'Driving or flying?'
"Flying. You can use my buddy pass."
And so the adventure began. Scottie the Hottie needed a break from the city, especially since his most recent ex-girlfriend lives in town. Valentine's Day is tough if you're single but especially rough when a place sparks so many memories - which can be avoided if you travel to a different state and do some sight seeing.
Mission: Get Out of Town
Destination: Washington, D.C.
We spent Saturday walking. The weather was perfect. While walking, a sculpture garden caught my attention.
This piece was at the intersection of Peel and Banana.
So was this funky, uh, thing. I loved the curves.
Oh, more curves! I really like how the tree curves to the dirt symbolizing creation and strength...
Speaking of trees, this is the National Christmas Tree. It was planted a few months before I was born. Tell me, which one of us makes 30 look good?!
(Hint: there is one correct answer and it doesn't rhyme with Fashional Mistress Key.)
Oh, and Obama was there. He didn't say much though. I thought he was a bit flat and 2 dimensional, but that's just me. All in all, Mission Get-Out-of-Town was a success. Thank goodness for friends who work for airlines, for buddy passes, but mostly, thank goodness for ex girlfriends!
