The clerk at Maverik noted my Mt. Vernon hat and asked if was for George Washington’s home along the Potomac. Is is, I told him, and we had the following exchange:
Clerk: I’ve been there. There’s just something there.
Me: I agree! (Thought bubble above my head: “Cool. Someone else who gets how great this country is and how important George Washington was to our national identity.)
Clerk: I don’t know what is is, but it really made my allergies react.
