This morning I decided to resume my practice of walking to my office. It's an easy 2.5-mile walk from the Cathedral rectory to the Catholic Pastoral Center and affords a bit of quiet in the day and is also a good chance to catch up on podcasts from Catholic Answers Live.
Naturally, I walk on the sidewalk, except when I cross a street; then I use the crosswalk. This morning, though, I had a difficulty sticking to this ordinarily simple plan.
Because I would need to make a left turn several blocks ahead, I was walking on the left sidewalk when I approached this scene:
The sign immediately in front of me (on the left) read: "SIDE WALK CLOSED USE OTHER SIDE."
The sign on the opposite sidewalk (on the right), which I was directed to use, read: "SIDE WALK CLOSED."
I hope I don't get in trouble for walking in the street on my way to the office.
