Escalump

One final note from the road trip (dedicated to Ruthie), I am officially in love with DC's metro system. Not because of how infrequently they run the trains or how slow they go. I am obsessed with a small ad inside one of the trains I took. It was made to look like a dictionary entry. It read something like this:

Escalump: A person who stands at the top or the bottom of a metro escalator, blocking the path of the people behind him or her and causing a general mess.

Love it!

Turns out that's actually not a good place to stand.

Love it! I shall incorporate this new vocabulary word into my everyday vernacular and refrain from calling them by the more commonly know term: dillholes.
