Case in point: In response to Fritz’s post on Commute By Bike to start making plans for National Bike To Work Day on Friday May 18th, I fired off a note to the management company for our office park asking them if they could set anything up for those of us that commute by bike. I got my reply; it wasn’t really what I’d hoped for.
“I will put the Bike to Work Day date on the Corporate Woods website under the Events Calendar, but we are not interested in putting an actual event together for this.”
My knee-jerk reaction was, in retrospect, very Veruca-like. After all, I want a party! Cream buns and doughnuts and fruitcake with no nuts, so good you could go nuts. Give it to me now! Seriously. I want a ball. I want a party! Pink macaroons and a million balloons and performing baboons… You get the picture.
They said they’d put in on the calendar of events and that is a good start. Now I need to get off my selfish rear and see what I can do, but that sounds a lot like work… Maybe I’ll just sit back and watch T.V. – oh, wait, that is a different character.
