Paging Kierkegaard, paging Søren Kierkegaard

I’m at Chinatown metro – I just heard, “What kind of millennial are you?!” “I know. I don’t like hummus either, or tomatoes…”

The next six weeks will be a breeze and a blur

Overheard in the Logan Exchange Co-working Lounge:

Young woman to coworker: “Did I tell you I’m killing it at Lent this year!? No beer or wine. Booze only.”

So that’s what the whole ‘Happy Holidays’ thing is all about.

Lyft Line driver from D.C., completely genuinely: “Did you know there are people from other countries who don’t celebrate Christmas? Like India, Jamaica, and Colombia.”

Requiring some serious skills.

In line for the bathroom at Franklin Hall Saturday afternoon.

A guy to two female friends: “I don’t understand why guys and girls can’t cross swords. It would make things move much more quickly.”

The two girls nod in agreement…

Just don’t mix them up.

On the platform at Columbia Heights station, guy talking on his cell phone, “Protein. He ordered protein. Yeah, it is amazing the frequency with which he buys Rogaine and protein.”

It’s a race, it’s a chase, hurry up and feed their face!

Bar on the Hill:

“We are playing chess over here, while they are playing hungry hungry hippos” – on government relations

And when all else fails

GW student having lunch with friends: “So, I emailed all my professors that I have the flu.”
