On my walk up to Union Station on Friday I had a narrow escape.
Right after crossing at Mass. and North Capitol I saw a woman reach into the garbage can out of the corner of my eye. I also heard her say "Hey, you see this?! You got that?!"
Then she threw a large plastic Taco Bell cup right past my head, narrowly missing my right ear.
It exploded with a loud thud on the Postal Museum's front steps. Ice was everywhere.
"Yeah, now you got that!" she screamed (at me, I think?), but I just kept walking. The safest option, no?
