~5.4 mi @ ~13.7 min/mi

"Are you going to wait until I die before you propose to her?" asks somebody's Grandma, impatient about the engagement process's slow pace. (Deservedly so: she donated a diamond to get things going!) Dawn Patrol is rejoined by Caitlin, who tells of cutthroat competition for over-the-top holiday lawn decorations in her parents' neighborhood. Christmas lights on a tree glitter in reflection off a glass-fronted home; adjacent three-garage mini-mansions feature giant inflatable ornaments. Laser-projected spots converge into snowflake shapes and dissolve into speckles. Spiky pastel-glowing spheres cling to tree limbs. K-Rex navigates through McLean cut-through paths on a frosty morning.
