I was using the Washington, DC metro trip planner the other day to time metro rides to some different places, when I noticed an ad for some DC metro themed merchandise. I was immediately intrigued. When I lived in the DC area previously, I was a huge metro fan. I'll admit that part of my affection for the metro system has to do with my extreme discomfort with driving and the fact that I didn't usually ride metro during rush hour. But all of that aside, I think most reasonable people could agree that there are times when it is extremely useful.
Getting back to the ad, there is a DC metro gift shop! And it goes far beyond t-shirts, coffee mugs, and the like. Check out these awesome items:
A metro cuff bracelet, for those times when your outfit isn't complete without that special statement accessory!
A shower curtain, for those bathrooms whose color schemes include red, orange, yellow, green, and blue!
Best of all, there are costumes for kids!
Get excited for next Christmas, everyone!
