The eternal battle of the DuPont Circle Escalator

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

So I always gripe about walking up the DuPont Circle Escalator, which works out to about four floors, even though I always walk up it, because if I didn't I'd feel like I was being lazy. And I'd kick myself if it made me miss the shuttle.

So today the escalator! Was! Broken! I don't know how many fewer steps you have to go when it's moving, but man, my heart rate was spectacularly high by the time I reached the top.

The down escalator was moving, of course. Priorities and all.

And when I got to the top, it turned out that someone's shoe was jammed in the top step. I hope all they lost was the shoe and not some toes.

    But think how out of breath you would have been if you weren't walking up it before. I bet there were others in much worse shape. Good for you!

    Ouch on the shoe.

    *ouch*

    You just fed my escalator phobia.

    But, hooray for you! You are like Gorn, conquering hills.
