Ladies and Gentlemen, the Saddest Tweet Ever

saddest twitter post ever.jpg

It's not you, it's my earth-toned planned real estate development.


  1. I did that once. Not even kidding.

  2. Dating someone in Reston while living in DC is a long distance relationship for the following reasons. The "pop-in" is a small to non-existiant possibility. There is no, "I was in the neighborhood, so I decided to stop by." Meet-ups require travel planning. "I have to make sure I have enough gas," "I have to figure out a bus to train to bus itinerary," "I better use the bathroom before I go." Along with that, the likelihood of sleepovers is almost 100%. If I'm dating someone in the neighborhood, I could theoretically come over for dinner, have a few drinks, make a little love and make it home that same evening. Not so when I have to catch a bus to a train to a bus or drive 30 miles under the influence of alcohol or post-coital bliss. Can relationships work between Restonians and DCists? Yes, but each party should know that he or she is entering a long distance relationship.

    Considering it just took me 75 minutes to get from the Skyline area of Arlington to our "super rad awesome" Mauve Wonderland I don't blame this couple for terming this a "long-distance relationship." Perhaps if the anti-progress NIMBYs years ago had shut their traps the SILVER LINE actually would have been operational by now?

  4. Probably had a small wiener, also.

    How about trying out this line: "I was in the neighborhood enjoying some awesome pasta at the Macaroni Grill, so I decided to stop by."

    BiCO (a.k.a. Hoodsie-Woodsie):

    Well, they COULD have met halfway in your favorite urban environment of Tysons Corner, although I guess the guy would run the risk of having his pants wowed off him by the overly botoxed Krystal Koons.

    Seriously, give me a break that DC to Reston is long distance. Before getting married, my wife and I were separated for a couple of years by 5,000 miles.

  6. I'm with Peasant. Even after we were married my job kept me in Germany and his kept him in Alabama...for two more years....

  7. I hate Krystal Koons' face.
