A nice short post to balance yesterdays overflow!
I am afraid of escalators. They are scary machines that want to eat your feet and drag you down into the bowels of the building by the shoelaces.
Andrew is not afraid of escalators. He persists in sliding, not stepping off as is recommended. Even in sandals, which is when the real danger is. Although this is a large risk to limb and toes, he always pesters me to join in his reckless ways. I stand by my feet though and step off very carefully, being careful not to get anywhere near the dreaded edge thing.
Where do you stand? Are escalators waiting to snap up your tootsies or are they a fun ride at the mall?
P.S. Not as dangerous seeming, but weird feeling: slanted people movers. A cross between an escalator and a moving sidewalk.
