Just a little walk
We started off our day with a walk to Target. It was only 2-miles away and we were determined to get there. It was an interesting walk. Ever, Sheila and I talked the whole time while Caylah lagged behind. See below:
We also saw a dead deer along the way at a gas distrubution building-it was sad. It was behind a fence, and we almost did not see it. To take our mind off it, we discussed Ever’s English. She learned three new words yesterday: crutches, trip (as in to fall) and scale (to weigh yourself on). We finally got tired of walking when we decided to call Target. While I was calling, I had Caylah ask a passing man if Target was closed and he screamed “no” at her. It was funny, only … we really were not going in the right direction. We walked two and a half miles in the opposite direction and ended up at Shady Grove-the next metro stop over. We ended up taking the metro to Twinbrooks-the station right before Rockville. It was a only one to two minute ride there-it was depressing. Here is a picture of us waiting for the train at Shady Grove.
Once at Twinbrook, it was a surprisely short and easy trip to Target. After the Target adventure, we ended up spending the rest of the day at home. I am not feeling so great-and apparently not looking so great since two of my roommates keep saying I looked “flushed.” The highlight of our day was when Ever came back from her date with Brendon. It was her second successful date with him after meeting him Friday night when we went out with some TWC guys. Caylah and I met him again last night when he met Ever and us at the movies to see “He’s Just Not That Into You.” It was a great movie, by the way.
