Another One Bites the Dust…

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

There’s an epidemic going on here in DC—it’s called All-of-Our-Friends-Keep-Moving.  Apparently, The Hububs and I are the only ones who love Washington, DC because all of our friends keeping leaving in mass droves!  Every six months there’s a new going away party and every time we meet new couples, T and I start whispering about their potential to be our new buddies.

Do we have bad breath??  Did we not return your table saw??  Why do they keep skipping town??

Sadly, Elizabeth was our most recent bucket kicker, so she’ll lead the way in our list of friends on distant shores…
