They're Too Bloody Slow

I like taking the escalator. It's fun & the best way to get around when you're older. I'd croak on the stairs (like in the good ole days, Department stores)
 They're too slow. I think people get scared or a tad dizzy because they crawl, crawl crawl. Whisk my carcass up to the next floor for God's sake.Turtle travel. That's what I call.  I wait & look for that last few inches before the fake step fades into the mechanism..leap off!  Whee..I knocked my toe on that last step once..looked silly so now I win over the escalator..Ha..Notice how people smile when the get to the top?   Could be they want off the turtle too.

Cool if we could just get beamed up to the Ladies Dept..Oh yeah..

Haha.. I never thought about it but you are correct.. elevator speed can be excruciating! I always walk up unless someone is in my way. I suppose it does make you stop and smell the roses though :)
