Walk the Line?

I almost forgot to mention an interesting tidbit.

My department head spoke with the local theatre company who is performing Romeo and Juliet and received an opportunity to have a special performance for all of our 600 freshmen students who read the play during the Spring. We have the funding for the tickets but not for substitute teachers and transportation.

When the Boss Lady was approached about helping get funding for the needed buses, she replied “Why not walk them to the show?”

Let me see…600 freshmen, over two miles, on snowy and icy sidewalks, and then a return trek all uphill. Hmm…I wonder why that might be a bad idea?

Needless to say, instead of trying to help us find a means of creating this awesome event, especially for students who may never have this opportunity again, we’re told to “work it out.”

Sheesh!
