I recently read a great post over at The Misadventures of Adulthood about something called a Walk Score. Apparently there's a web site that will calculate how desirable your home location is based on how many interesting or useful amenities are close by.
At my mother's house there are steep hills on all sides of us and very few things within walking distance. Without a second car, no wonder I'm going stir-crazy. Just to be certain I wasn't imagining things, I hopped on over there and plugged in my address. Sure enough, I was right. Our Walk Score is seven.
SEVEN people. Seriously, I suck.
Head on over to Walk Score and find out how you measure up and then come back here and tell me so I can be jealous. I'll be amazed if anyone beats my SEVEN. Oh. And my father, by comparison, scored a 75. Maybe we should just go move in with him.
