Spring In Dupont

© Stephen Bess 2006

The temperature is up to 75 F here in DC. Spring is finally here! I love to go for my little stroll after lunch. This is a scene up on Dupont Circle around lunch time. There were so many people at the park just chillin' all over the grass. I've never been comfortable with "city" grass. There are too many dogs and pigeons in this area. In other words, too much dog and pigeon pee all over the place (although I've never seen a pigeon pee?). You don't want to get that stuff on ya! I'm going to need a blanket down there. These people, on the other hand, are very comfy with the land. They're lying down and eating on it??? I don't know? I guess that I'm just funny like that. Have a great weekend and take a blanket if you go to the park! :)

Hmmm... I think you need to take Mrs. Wifey on an outdoorsy camping trip.

Camping trip?? Man, I'm not sleeping out in the wild. :)Sleeping in the wild to me is falling sleep with a window open.

Actually, that would be fun come to think of it.

don't mean to sound...ummm...racist...but those people all comfy with the grass are usually white *lol*

but it does look tempting!

Prisoner's Wife-
Pictures don't lie. :)
I can't dig that city grass. I have to be a little away from the city to feel comfortable without a blanket.

not gonna lie, i got caught up in a moment @ Central Park last spring while my beloved was playing soccer. i will blame it on being pregnant. i needed to lay back for a minute *lol*

Dude, you are totally justified not wanting to sit or eat on the grass.. not only is there endless bacteria from birds and animals, but think of the people who have hocked loogies and pissed there.

Wow... now you'll have me thinking about what's in grass whenever I walked by. I never sat on grass because I always wear dresses, but I never will with that description.

I'm lucky because I now live in the Caribbean so it's summer for me all year round!

prisoner's wife-
It's all good! This particular part of town is just suspect. :)

crallspace-
long time! Yes, can't forget the human part of this nastiness. :)

rose-
Haa haa! :) I was at the park yesterday. Everyone had blankets.

tu s tin-
No more snow! Please! :)

Racial Realist-
I envy your location! I've always wondered how it would be to live in the caribbean?
