Going Down?

My meditations on the fourth floor of the library were interrupted by a maintenance man. He had the door to one of the elevators open and was calling to someone below "Try to push open the door...wait, try to close it." Apparently, a girl was stuck in the elevator.

Up on four, other students poked their heads up from their carrels confused. One by one, they walked over to take a closer look. The worker informed the trapped library patron that a man from the elevator company was on his way. Then he added, "It's gonna be a while." This last bit drew cautious laughs from those in the vicinity. I hope she didn't hear our glee.

When I left to come home, I took the stairs.
