DC Luv

Sunday in the summer, after the rain, walking to Safeway, people out everywhere like it’s the first day of spring, stuff in the parking (Midwest term for space between sidewalk and street) that has been demoted to “don’t need any more.” Today’s offerings: two high though narrow plastic shelves, one table of questionable stability, set of colorful wooden blocks, potty-seat attachment, floor lamp. Farther along, a U Haul spews out young men holding bags. A young woman stands on a porch holding the door, and 20-30 bags of whoknowswhat waits on the curb for entry. New moving trend? Skip the boxes altogether?

About Carolyn

I live in Washington, D.C., write, teach, try to eat the requisite fruits and veggies daily, and avoid caffeine after 2 pm. I wonder about things a lot -- like why "pretty" means "pretty" and "not so much" and if I can ever perfect the single-portion, no-knead, daily baguette and how many people realize that Beau Brummel had a lot to do with our desire to bathe daily -- those of us who do in fact "take the daily."
