I’m a Horrible Resident

Name an attraction or town close to home that you still haven’t got around to visiting.

I live in the DC/MD/VA area. I basically have all the things around me.

One that is really embarrassing is the MGM at the National Harbor. I literally walked by it often while it was being built. I DRIVE by it to get my Starbucks (about to get some now). I still have NOT been inside. I live 5 minutes from this place.

Two others that I haven’t been to are in DC ( I live walking distance from DC). I have not been to the Holocaust nor the African American Museums. I think it’s more because I don’t WANT to go because both would infuriate me as a human being.

Being raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, we learned a lot about the people who wore the purple triangles. They were imprisoned, beaten, and killed because they refused to fight in the war. I have heard stories of the museum. I think I will pass.

I can’t do the African American Museum also because it will infuriate me. I got a taste of that HUGE museum at other museums in DC and I think I’m good on it. I still can’t watch slave movies because I would rather keep my wits about me and not want to pop people in retaliation for what my ancestors went through.

Fun times. There are many other close places I haven’t been but we would be here all day. Thanks for reading.

Blogging about life. Well, my life. As a black, bipolar, mom to a teenager with special needs, well, there is always a story to tell. From my aversion to having a man to my weird experiences while trying to avoid people, it's all there. Being me is.... different but it always makes for good blogs.
