I suppose that whatever your profession, you find yourself viewing life in terms of your day job. Contractors probably do it: “I know why that wall’s not plumb..” Dentists do it, “we only have sugar-free candy in our house.” Heck, for all I know, marine biologists do it … Though I don’t know how.
Here are a few of the thoughts that ran through my mind when I went trick-or-treating with my kids Thursday:
“Yikes! That broken piece of sidewalk is going to trip someone in the dark.”
“Good grief. Some kid’s going to fall off that porch because it doesn’t have a railing.”
“Glad we raked the leaves off the sidewalk. Somebody’s going to trip on the edge between the sidewalk and lawn here.”
