Advantages and disadvantages of walking one's errands
Friday, March 23, 2012
I just made a lovely little trip to my neighborhood shopping area. In about 40 minutes I was able to get in 30 minutes of walking, drop off a library book, pick up some wine, order flowers for a friend, and buy stamps. The bonus was I ran into a neighbor heading in the same direction for a baby present, so we walked together and had a nice chat. That wouldn't have happened if we'd each driven.
The downside is that I suppose if I had been in a car I would not also have stopped at the coffee shop for delicious scones to bring home....
