Bring your kid to work day....

Even though the state labor board sees your job as so hazardous that it classifies your industry as level 5 workers comp, the most dangerous level of employment which is insurable at a rate 15 times higher than those who work in let's say an office environment but equivalent to those who work driving HAZMAT or commercially fish off shore. On New Years eve day Ms Arcen had her last urban ride on the Trek Tag along while she kept up with my light holiday schedule at work in the uptown. We ran our schedule through the noon hour and had one deposit as far as 900 East Blvd which gave us cause to stop at Latta Park for awhile. I now know after seeing these images that she has fully outgrown the Tag Along but it has been a wonderful toy to allow her the feel of being connected in an urban situation, I guess I should have my eye out for a full sized tandem. The elevator commentary was full on with statements ranging from, "How cute" to questions like, "Are you not scared for her safety?" Hmmm let me think about that for a second, her safety is just fine.

My answer to people who ask me that question about safety when I ride on the streets with my own daughters is, "Only when YOU are driving". When they take offence, I retort, "if you don't drive like a maniac, then why should I worry".

Not only does it confuse the hell out them; the reply also forces them, however briefly, to have a glimse of themselves as drivers sharing the streets with my kid.
