"ARLINGTON, VA -- Nate Martin was so happy to drive home from Washington, D.C. without hitting a traffic jam that he briefly forgot how much he hated his house, job, and life in northern Virginia."Hey, it's not that bad. As a northern Virginian, that would be my expected viewpoint, though my biases point in different directions, since:
- I live in Reston, and thus look enviously upon Arlington.
- I moved down here from New York City, and thus I consider everything outside New York "the suburbs," anyway.*
I was working on site in McLean the other day and was scoffed at when I said I live in MD. The dude who scoffed lives in Gainesville. I said, "I may live over the bridge but I bet I can get home faster than you."
Yeah. The "Maryland vs. Virginia" thing. I don't get that one, either.
I am that nate martin.
