“You missed all the fun.”

It figures that if we happen to be visiting the nation’s capital during the occurrence of a minor and ultimately harmless security incident that winds up producing a panicked and disorderly evacuation of numerous federal edifices and therefore making the national news, Celina and I will somehow find a way to be on a clothes-shopping trip in another part of town when all the excitement goes down.

This seems to be an extension of the same principle whereby we seem to be elsewhere whenever a really interesting earthquake hits the Bay Area; in both instances, I don’t know whether to be relieved or disappointed.
