So I walked to school today.
A nice lady pulled up beside me while I walked along Grand and asked if I were going to MSU. Then she asked if I wanted a ride. I thanked her and said “no.” I added something about liking to walk and it being good for me.
I’m not sure I should have added that last part. But, really, I believe I was having a higher quality experience walking than she was having driving. Driving in slick conditions is technically challenging — and not in a fun way. I suppose I could make the same claim about walking in slick conditions
In any case, I appreciated the politeness and concern. And that leads me to: 10 Reasons to Be Nice to Pedestrians in 2011.
