The Burger Place

Once upon a time there was a cute little Mom and Pop restaurant called The Burger Place. It was nothing fancy and as the name implies, they sell burgers as well as other greasy yummy food. This store had been in business for 15 years and employed many wonderful people over that time. Everyone loved the Burger Place. Everyone except the Washington City Council. They wanted the land that the Burger Place sat on to widen the road. We still do not know why they wanted the entire store. Why not just dig up the sidewalk and move it closer? We may never know. But what we do know is that last week the Burger Place met it's demise and was brought down into a pile of rubbish. It was so sad. I saw kids going over and picking up bricks and taking them home to have something to remember it by. Our cute little Washington. Our small quaint town that we were so proud of is now turning into a bigger city whether we like it or not. Construction has started and our little country main street is all torn up by big machines that eat up the ground like a hungry T-Rex that found a herd of small dinosaurs to feast on. It's so sad. And it will not end until January 2012! Oh the humanity!
