BRUSH WITH REDSKINS GREATNESS
One of the most famous and recognizable Washington Redskins recently approached the prescription counter at a busy CVS pharmacy in Vienna to pick up some medication.
As she did with every customer, reports 43-year-old Vienna resident Lee Moraglio, the young female clerk behind the register asked, "Name?"
"Mann," said the retired, three-time Super Bowl champion defensive end, "M-A-N-N."
"First name?" she proceeded to ask.
"Charles" he said, probably a little grateful that at least one person in the Washington area did not recognize him.
WELCOME TO METRO
A father and son from Los Angeles were riding Metro's Red Line the long way around to Silver Spring but had been delayed on their trip because their Metrobus to the station was late. The son was checking routes on his phone to see if they could get there faster.
"Here," he turned to his dad. "It says we can take a bus from Bethesda."
A rider sitting next to him apologetically told him they were just leaving the Bethesda station.
"Oh. Well which stop is Washington?" he asked.
The rider told him there were about a dozen or so through the city.
"But at this point, your best bet is to stay on the train and get off at Silver Spring," she said, pointing to the map.
The son's eyes widened as he looked at the U-shaped Red Line -- and the 17 stations -- they were about to become acquainted with.
"It's not like it is in L.A.," he said, taking a puff from his e-cigarette.
ANOTHER BROKE INTERN
On her way home from work, an intern with brown hair and cheap shoes called her mother to relate the thrilling events of the day.
"... And then I found five dollars!" she concluded. "No, mom. I really found five dollars! I can get coffee tomorrow!"
A young woman sitting next to an exhausted father on the Metro made his evening commute much easier by playing peekaboo and talking about LEGOS with his two young sons.
"You smell," the 4-year-old boy told her just before the family disembarked.
"Good or bad?" the young woman asked.
"Your answer better be 'good'," the father whispered to his son.
The boy took his father's advice, just a little too far.
"Good! You smell ... yummy. Downright DELICIOUS."
His father blanched and hurried away, deeply embarrassed as his son continued to eye the young woman, licking his lips.
