I walked out of the Pentagon this afternoon...walked three minutes....and caught the Metro. Sixteen minutes later, I got out and walked three hundred feet and bought a ticket to watch a movie. I stepped in and sat down, and the movie started four minutes later.
Going from your office to the seat at the theater....in less than thirty minutes. Never worrying about parking. Never waiting for red lights. Never pausing for some idiot driver.
There is this element of living in metro life that I'm coming to appreciate.
