A Lift in Life
I'm in St. George, Utah, for a 3-day weekend; and we had an unfortunate beginning to the weekend: This evening, when we were on our way to dinner along with some friends, we, the friends, and about 9 other people (including a newborn baby, a toddler, and an eight-year-old girl who was taking the elevator to meet her family in the lobby) got trapped in a hotel elevator for 40 minutes. The experience was awful for the little girl; fortunately, one of the folks in the elevator would call the front desk periodically and have the father put through to the girl. But at least having the kids there prevented me from panicking, because I felt I had to put on a cheerful front for the kids' sake.
