One thing I’m not going to be able to do as well when the Metro cuts happens is hopping on a random bus and just getting off and wandering around. Sometimes I’ll just wait on 4th Ave or the Bus Tunnel, and take whatever comes next. Usually, it’s quite lovely. The last time I did it, I was caught in some rain, but it wasn’t too bad. Before that happened, I managed to have this exchange with some random person outside an apartment complex on the Eastside that I’d never be able to find again with a map:
Random person: Hey what are you listening to?
Carl Ballard: A Podcast.
RP: What Podcast?
CB: Um, Overthinking It
RP: Never heard of it. Do you want to buy some meth?
RP: Hey what type of music do you listen to?
