National Walk To School Day
We got a letter from our school district awhile ago stating that today, “October 6th, 2010″, was National Walk To School Day. They wanted to promote walking to school instead of driving your kids to school. This would be a very “Green” thing to do. It would cut down on car emissions and traffic congestion around the school, the children and I would get exercise, it was considered an all around “No Brainer Good Thing”.
My wife was all for it. This would be great for the kids and me! I said if they want to cut down on emissions and congestion, why don’t they bring back the school bus service that they cancelled without notifying anybody and that we were paying for with our taxes. No one ever talks about that one.
Then she looked at me and asked, “Well, are you going to do it?”
I thought for a minute and my response was, ” I can walk the kids to school any day I want. On the 6th I’m gonna drive because that will be the only day I can pretty much guarantee I’ll get a good parking space.”
