My DC grandson is in town this week. He pops in 2 or 3 times a year for a week or so, we see movies, he goes to Kings Island with his cousins, we all eat a year’s worth of Skyline in that week.
Kyle loves Skyline. If he ever moves here – as we discuss pretty often – at least one meal a day will always be Skyline time.
He arrived around midnight Saturday night / Sunday morning. The rest of the family was in bed by that time in their various houses. I was still up, because Kyle was going to stay here. And he wanted his Skyline hit right then – if it wasn’t too late for his grandmother. No way was I going to say it was too late. So there we were at 1 a m, at the Clifton Skyline, with me eating their vegetarian black beans and rice.
The whole group of us saw Inception together on Sunday, with Skyline before and after. And I had the black beans and rice over a steamed potato. Monday was a day with cousins and uncles, car shopping and suit shopping. Then for supper, we went to Dewey’s for that great house salad and the Edgar Allen Poe, half and half with Kyle’s pepperoni and extra cheese. We came back to the house and did his semi-annual Tarot card reading.
Tuesday we hit Skyline before seeing Cyrus – I had the black bean burrito. Since I was teaching an Intuitive Development class that evening, Kyle hung out with cousins. Wednesday was lunch in Glendale with my sister at the Indian place, Taj Mahal, in Springdale. And a Second Degree Reiki class for me, with Kyle and his grandfather going to the Reds game (where I’m sure he had Gold Star coneys), so Kyle could see the Nats new star pitcher, Stephen Strasburg, beat the Reds. Exactly what he had in mind. Today they saw the day game, and played a round of golf.
We’ll see what happens tomorrow! And see how many more ways I can have those black beans and rice.
