The DC I Forgot
Alissa ran in The Army Race on the Sunday I was there. I thought she either enlisted or was dating a soldier ... kinda unusual for her to run in a race for the Army, you know? Turned out it was neither. She just did it with friends for fun. She placed 10,177th which was pretty good considering there were over 20,000 that ran. I would have placed 30,056th.
She texted me (that's how we communicate) to meet her at a restaurant on one of those letter streets (P or Q or something) and about 17th when they finished running. I waited outside for her group to arrive, when she actually called me to say:
" No, honey ... just standing by the front door."
" My friends told me that the restaurant is ... um ... Gay ... "
" I figured it out when I read the sign."
" Are you going to be ..."
" Gay? No I don't think so ... but I am hungry so hurry up."
We all wound up sharing the big gay brunch together ... when Alissa and her friends arrived.
Apparently his girlfriend disappeared.
He said, "Wow ... was he an albino?"
