Walk to Work Day

Years of medical research has shown that walking is one of the best ways to stay healthy and keep your body in shape. So, once a year, why not take the doctor’s advice and walk to work on Walk to Work Day?

Walk to Work Day, an unofficial holiday, occurs on various dates in different countries. In the United States, the day is annually observed on the first Friday of April.

This event is different from the American Heart Association’s National Walk to Work Day, which is held on the first Wednesday of April.

How to Celebrate?

  • Wear comfortable walking shoes and walk to work.
  • If you are unable to walk to work, take public transport instead and then walk from the bus or train stop to your workplace.
  • If you have to drive or take public transport to your workplace, why not walk to your lunch instead.
  • Not in the United States, do not worry! You can still celebrate the holiday by yourself. Recruit colleagues and friends to walk with you to work.

My wife's car horn began to beep in cold weather and would only stop when she disconnected it. So she disabled the horn and drove to the dealership, whose garage had its door shut to keep out the cold.

Outside was a sign: "Honk horn for service."

Searching in my library for two books by communications expert Deborah Tannen turned into an Abbott and Costello routine. "What's the first book?" the librarian asked.

"That's Not What I Meant," I said.

"Well, what did you mean?"

"That's the title of the book," I explained.

"Okay." She looked at me a little skeptically. "And the other book?"

"You Just Don't Understand."

"Excuse me?"

I got both books. Eventually.

During a recent meeting of our Optimist Club, we challenged one another to come up with an inspirational sentence using the word countenance. This was the winning entry:

"I put a cheerful countenance on people every day." It was submitted by our local funeral director.

Soon after we were married, my husband, Paul, stopped wearing his wedding band.

"Why don't you ever wear your ring?" I asked.

"It cuts off my circulation," Paul replied.

"I know," I said. "It's supposed to."
