On my commute home on the Green Line, I found an Express on an empty seat. [Whoever cleans Metro must be super pissed about all those copies of Express left on subway cars]. Anyways…what I read really got me down. Here are the things that depressed me:

1) The author of a book entitled The Geography of Bliss says his “happy place” is a Caribou Coffee in Silver Spring.

2) The WAKA Kickball people have enough revenue to place an ad celebrating its 10-year anniversary. The ad beckons readers to “Visit our website to network with other kickball players, check out gifts & gear…” I’m still deciding on whether I need a $29.99 “Kickball Superstar Folding Camping Chair.”

3) And finally…just reading the phrases “Mix It All Up Hybrid Style” and “Strengthen Your Core” made me sad. I will do no such things as core strengthening and mixing it up hybrid style.
