what's boring in d.c.?
along with its monuments, museums & historic sites, washington also has many boring places of interest to calm the weary tourist-

dry cleaners
a window ledge with a rubber plant in a green-foil-covered pot, ancient magazines & a few dead flies in a vermont ave dry cleaner.

a space marked "permit parking only" occupied by a rusty cart from a long-defunct grocery store in a gravelly lot on p st.

a half-obliterated historical mark-er on 6th st. identifying the site as the former center of d.c.'s once-thriving hat-blocking district.

a small neutral zone of beige wall in metro car #314 that can be com-fortably stared at as it's not somebody's armpit, fanny pack or face.
