Day #223: The Amplifites – “It’s My Life”
We got a new intern today. I think she’s going to be a good one. She comes to us for the semester by way of Atlanta. Since it’s her first day, we took her to lunch at Vapiano’s, the chain Italian restaurant, and it surprised me by how totally blown away she was by how trendy DC is, and kept saying so. (We are indeed real northeastern yuppie). “That place is like an adult cafeteria! That’s soooo trendy!” she said as we left the restaurant.
I know Atlanta is far less pretentious by comparison, but I never thought someone from another big city would have such culture shock.
