It doesn’t happen so often now, but when I was younger, just before getting on an escalator, sometimes I would momentarily imagine myself being sucked in. My fear was probably more Tom and Jerry-esque rather than real-life panic and I would always laugh off my anxiety once I was safely on my way.
However, even these days I still sometimes imagine myself getting stuck in an elevator and all those crazy movies where people get stuck in elevators don’t help. One thing is for sure if I ever do get stuck in an elevator I definitely want Keanu Reeves or Bruce Willis to come and rescue me.
Believe it or not but such things do happen in real life, including highly unfortunate incidents with escalators. I started to look up research on this but it turned out to be tmfi… too much freakin’ information.
The mere act of living and keeping my head above water is enough. Life can often feel like getting stuck in an elevator or ground up by an escalator. That’s the craziness of life!
