Soundtrack: Ben Folds "Rockin' the Suburbs" and "Way to Normal"
Running through Capitol Hill is a trip. It's a neighborhood where it is completely unsurprising to see an old timey bicycle as a yard decoration. In fact, the only surprising thing about encountering an old timey bike here is that there isn't someone with an ironic mustache riding it. I like this section of town quite a bit, and especially enjoy how free people feel to let their freak flag fly. I didn't see too much that was extremely unusual, but I like that there is always an air of expectancy that I COULD see something weird.
Apart from this old bicycle with a huge wheel, my other favorite thing I saw was an American flag that had been altered to be orange and blue, and featured a Bronco logo in the field of stars. That is a flag I am happy to salute! Broncomania is beginning to mellow out just a little, but this town is still definitely on a Super Bowl high a month later.
