Episode IV of Adventures in DC

December 15, 2009

Hi Ty and Becks!

How was your day? I hope it was a great one! I sure miss you guys! I had so much fun last weekend being with you guys. I can't wait until next Tuesday when we will get to be together for 2 whole weeks! Just think, when I get home next Tuesday, Christmas will only be two days away.

I gave Meg the present you guys made for her. she really likes it. Robert and her are thinking of putting a magnet on it and using it as a refrigerator magnet.

So last night I had quite an adventure. I had to go to a place called West Springfield to get something from a guy. Since I don't have a car I had to take the metro to the end of the track and then switch over to a bus. After I got off the us I had to then walk in the dark for about a mile to get to his house. The bus was tricky because I didn't have the right amount of money so I told the bus driver and he was ice enough to let me ride for free. Then because it was night time, I couldn't see where the bus was. I had to ask a lady to tell me when we got to my stop. Then after I got there and walked to his house, I walked back to the bus and had to wait out side in the cold and dark for an hour. Luckily mommy talked to me on the phone the whole time so that I wasn't bored or scared. Finally the bus came and took me back to the metro. I got on the blue metro, but I needed to transfer later to the yellow, because the yellow would get me to the Red line metro faster.

While I was waiting for the yellow line, a man came up to me. He was dirty and smelly, he had been drinking alcohol and so he wasn't thinking very well. He said he was hungry and asked me for money to buy food. I said that I had .50 cents and gave it to him.

He said, "Hey man, what am I gonna buy with .50 cents?"

I said, " I don't know." He said, "Come on man, I'm so hungry."

Then I said, "Look, so am I , and I have a wife and two little boys at home, and I don't have a job either."

He said, "Hmmm, well, I don't have a job, and why are you dressed up so nice?"

I said, "Because I go to work but they don't pay me."

Then he said, "Well gee Mr. that coat sure is nice, you should trade me, your coat will keep me warm."

I thought, man this guy is crazy and said, "No, I need to stay warm too."

He said, "Come on man, trade me."

I said, "No," and laughed at the suggestion. Then he walked away. Crazy man. I got on the metro and finally got home around 11:30. What a crazy adventure.

Well, I miss you all so much and love you all so so so sooooo much. Please be nice to each other and love each other, especially love mommy for me! I love you Ty, I love you Becks, I love you Anj.

I don't think I have said this enough, but I am soooo glad that you are all together again and can be a regular family. Were you ever afraid for Matthias while he was away having his crazy DC adventures?
