- Five. Hours. Of quiet, peaceful train.
- Oh, my goodness, but it was really great to see all my old friends, none of whom I'd seen since I moved to the Frozen North.
- I had a fantastic time and enjoyed almost every single minute (except taking four wrong turns in a row and ending up in front of a car dealership in Falls Church, i.e. Not Where I Wanted. GPS: It was invented for people like me; I don't have it.) Friends! Nice meals! Public transportation! Complete freedom to go where I pleased, when I pleased!
- And.... Tatoe has just poured water into my coffee cup, spooned in a spoonful of sugar, and is stirring it while saying "I put spoon in the coffee cup!" Time's up.
