Monthly Announcement

April 4th is Walk Around Things Day

Walk Around Things Day is an important day to avoid problems and risks, by simply walking around the potential problem. You wouldn’t walk under a ladder, would you? Then, it is also wise to walk around objects, especially those that pose risk or danger.

“Walk around things” can also be used figuratively. It is also wise to walk around, or avoid, topics issues, and problems that are sticky, may provoke an argument, or are not readily solved.

If ever was a day to “Walk Around Things”, today is that day.
