    One Time We Took The Empire Carpet Man To DC

    I would say this is a long story, but they though it up that morning.

    It was a lovely morning in October, and I was in Vienna, VA visiting my lovely aunts with my mother. We were taking the metro in to downtown DC. My Aunt Shari, in her regular fashion, came downstairs with the Empire Carpet Bobblehead, hereon known as EM (short for Empire Man). The adventures that ensued are documented below.

    Meet EM, he loves Bacon for breakfast.

    Then, things got phallic.

    It's not really a trip to DC until you visit a food truck!

    We're heading home.

    EM found some Empire apples in the metro car... what a strange coincidence.

    Sadly, our day with EM ended in tragedy. He's recovering well, stay tuned!
