Did you “suit up” today on E Street?

Seen on E Street NW near 5th Street

Like my Dad used to caution me, when it’s raining, you wear a raincoat. He didn’t mean a real raincoat, of course. Southerners speak in metaphor and I knew what he meant.

Someone apparently found it necessary to don a raincoat over on E Street NW. I suppose there are less romantic places to get busy than near the homeless shelter but I certainly haven’t been forward enough to bring anyone there.

To the guy who hit it and his lucky female and/or male companion: Thank you for picking up after yourself, at least for the contents of the wrapper. Next time, though, even in the heat of the moment, in the throes of your E Street passion, please take the time to pick up the wrapper. It will show that special someone that chivalry is still alive.

    There must be a different meaning to banana chip than the one I am thinking of. At the risk of sounding un-cool, and being not so hip to your young person lingo, can you explain what a banana chip is in this context? I just know them as a delightful dehydrated snack.

    You made my day – my guess is I’m older than you. I’m glad to be painted with the hip brush.

    Banana chip is slang for the contents of the wrapper when its used and dried up. Dehydrated? Yes. A delightful snack? I should think not.

    I was joshing you about the age, but likely you are more hip than I am, regardless. Thanks for the schooling here. I knew it had to be something like that but needed that extra explanation. That is going right into my vocabulary!

    Now we know why there are visible panty lines over on 17th Street.

    My office is in the neighborhood of 20th and I. I’m concerned the Banana chip may be found there!
