    If you have a locker, keep a spare there; then they're all good days.

    I keep two pairs of spares...that's all I'm going to say about that.

    No locker required. All you need is a desk, or a drawer. At least that's what a friend tells me.

    I'd recommend a pair of drawers rather than just one.

    As I was accelerating down K Street to go under Washington Circle from the west, I was struck on the left arm by an object from above. The only thing I can think of is that someone threw something at me from on top of the bridge. I was struck about where the "X" is on this map:

    I was not hurt, thankfully. I was in no position to stop and investigate, either the object or whether it was in fact thrown at me or was just something that had fallen from above. It seemed about the size of a baseball (but not round--more like a piece of asphalt maybe?), although it all happened pretty fast. I'm not sure what to make of this.

    Strewth Steve, glad you were not hurt, would you like to request from HSEMA a copy of DDOT surveillance footage from camera # CCTV-132 at 24th St and Washington Circle using a foia? The website mentions it gets deleted after 10 days. Trouble is it appears to cover a point before you were struck so unsure how useful it might be.

    I had that thought, but it hit me just before I went under, so the object was not traveling straight down. Unless it was a meteorite.

    The fireballs would have been your evening commute:

    Too bad because that would have been a hail-of-a story.

    Could it have been a chunk of rock salt or asphalt that got kicked over the ledge by a passing car/bus/truck/etc.?
