Thing 2: ?He just walks around the streets?
Me: ?No, he’ll be making a speech somewhere with a lot of people.
Thing 1: ?Maybe Costco! ?Costco is pretty big.
(We often go to Costco in Leesburg. ?And last week Robert Griffin III, new quarterback for the Redskins, was reportedly shopping at the same Costco.)

Thing 1: ?Like his wife?
Thing 2: ?No, Mrs. Obama is a doctor
