I finally found something I don’t like about DC.
The freaking traffic.
Yesterday, I tried to go to the DC FABB blogger meetup for June – and i spent around 4 hours in traffic. I am not exaggerating. 2.5 hours there, missing the meetup entirely, then 1 hour to the mall for some retail therapy, and to wait out the traffic, and finally 1/2 an hour home. By the time I got home it was after 9, and I wanted to cry. I wasted my evening in the car. That makes me sad. Even sadder, I wasted a good hair day :)
But I did buy new shoes at the mall… so I probably can’t complain too much?
Though I learnt a valuable lesson – 3 years in the Iowan countryside made me forget how to deal with cities during rush hour. I’m going to have to re-teach myself to use public transport. My SUV is gonna feel so snubbed.
