In DC, people can oftentimes be overheard in talking in public about arcane policy topics in great detail. Occasionally, one wonders if the conversation at the next table over might actually be between Very Important People who are assessing the options in preparation for a big decision.
Combining that with the Washington tradition of writing things on napkins during meals, I have arrived at a new pastime: When eating out, write stuff on napkins that looks sort of cryptic and important, and leave them behind to befuddle those who might pick them up. This past weekend Alex put in this excellent effort, which was left on the table at Ella's.
I think the inclusion of "panda travel" was particularly inspired. (The napkin also shows the influence of Fair Game, which we had all just seen at E Street.)
