Waking up this morning, laboring under the assumption today was Saturday, I saw Robin and George were hosting Good Morning America. There was a moment when I thought Odd, they don’t usually host weekends, but then went on with my morning ritual.
Since it was Saturday, and the weather looked good for walking, I suited up and headed to the college campus to put in a few miles.
Seeing what looked to be students walking towards the campus, and more cars than usual on the road headed that way, Must be something special going on, ran through my head. Should be a good day for taking photos of whatever it is.
Coming up on the entrance, seeing the parking lot full of cars, it suddenly dawned on me — today is not Saturday ... it's only Tuesday ... classes are in session.
Oh well, I’m here, said I to myself. So, I pulled into where I usually park on Saturdays, checked around to see if anyone looked like they were putting tickets on cars that did not have a parking sticker.
Not seeing parking enforcement, I figured I could do a quick mile and a half, be back before parking enforcement got around to my car — if parking enforcement still existed, which it did before the pandemic.
Walking a loop that logged in at 1:39 miles, 3,583 steps (way short of 10,000, Mike), I arrived back at the car — no ticket.
This thinking today was Saturday turned out to be a fortuitous error. Now that I know I can walk the campus during the week, when class is in session, lots of people around, no safety worries, I’ll be doing weekday walks more often, while this good weather holds up — Tuesdays and Thursdays at least, relax at home on Saturdays.
