Yesterday Rip Van Winkle got off at Ballston Metro Station! (I would have told you yesterday, but I forgot until just now.) And his beard was shorter. I wouldn’t say it was trimmed, but it was definantly shorter. His hair was even longer.

But why did he get off at Ballston? He never moves from he stop next to the door. What could he possibly have to do at Ballston? Visit the Mall that has nothing in it? Watch the Capitals practice? Meet Mrs. Van Winkle for drinks at Chilies? What was he doing?
