double take.

even though i have been living in DC for over a month, i still have moments when i'm still in chicago.

like this evening, for instance. i was walking back to the metro after work, and a man was walking toward me on the sidewalk. he was holding two big, green paper shopping bags in each hand. after i second, i realized that i had immediately assumed that they were marshall field's shopping bags. which would mean that the guy had walked a long way.

and of course, in the real world, i am in DC, and marshall field's shopping bags don't even exist anymore (except on ebay).
