If you told me ten years ago…
True story – I had friends who lived in Woodridge years ago must’ve been around 2005 and I went to their house for a BBQ. It was around 22nd Street, NE. So I figured, I’d just walk to Rhode Island and catch a cab when I was ready to go. This was before Lyft and Uber. So it’s relatively early like maybe 8 or 9pm. I walk to Rhode Island Ave and there are zero cabs. A big old goose egg. OK, I’m a walker (I walked to the BBQ but knew walking all the way home wasn’t a great option), so I figure what the hell I’ll just walk until I see a cab. hahaha It’s easy to forget the former cab dead-zones. There were many. It used to be impossible to catch a cab at Wonderland if you can believe that. Anyway, I get about 1 block on Rhode Island and this lady who must’ve been 70 years old or so makes a beeline straight towards me and says – “where are you going?” I say, I’m walking towards the metro and trying to catch a cab. She says “oh no you’re not.” She physically grabs me and walks to the bus stop and waits with me and RIDES WITH ME to the metro (I think it was Brookland) to make sure I got there OK. I’ll never forget that night. That by the by, is a very good example for those who ask me about the meaning of the beautiful life.
Anyway, enough about me, check out this listing I spotted while looking for today’s GDoN:
“Rare Opportunity in Hot Woodridge! Large Luxurious Custom Home awaits. Chef’s kitchen w/ Viking Pro cooking appliances and built in banquette.

I can imagine what my guardian would have to say about this…

For what it’s worth, this is the first Revisited that we are seeing that was listed following the election results. Real estate agents in DC these past few weeks are having some interesting conversations. It’s has been a while since we watched mortgage interest rates climb for what is now eight or nine straight weeks, to their highest level in two years. (more…)
