It rained and that closed me off from the crazy world around which I liked. As quickly as it started, the water stopped and I saw a blue sky and drove far and had the music up loud.
Mara and I finally returned to Georgetown to try the cupcakes and they were good and we felt good and we walked to the next metro station.
Down the street is a house and in it lives a dog and she’s shy and tender and affectionate. Her name is Frankie and sometimes I take the kids to say hello to her. Sometimes I say hello on my own.
When I found the Calvin & Hobbes comic for $5 a piece of me beamed. I paid for it and started reading it right there in the little bookstore just a few blocks from Farragut West metro station. I laughed out loud as other customers pushed passed me.
I went to H Street Festival alone and walked alone and drank alone and left alone. It was beautiful.
