Billy and I walked through the alley, cutting through Beverly's yard and then across the street to Engine House 14. Daisy's class took a walking field trip to see the fire station. Their teacher has them all convinced (as she is convinced) that fire houses are THE BEST FIELD TRIPS EVER. And in some ways, they are pretty cool. It's a mystery that's solved, a tangible career made even more visible (they put out fires, they rescue people, they respond to emergencies. Compare that to "project manager" or "assistant to the CFO" or some other classification).
