The Secret Joys Of Elevators

So my office is on the second floor of the church which requires one, yes only one flight of stairs to reach. However every time I'm headed downstairs (or upstairs) I spot that beautiful, beckoning, steel masterpiece calling my name.

Yes - the elevator. I try to be good and take the stairs, but here's the deal: I wear heels a lot and wouldn't want to injure myself! Truth be told I make up lots of excuses for using the elevator...but that's not actually the point of this post.

The point of this post comes from the fact that while I was in said elevator this week, I found myself busting a move (and the move was not at all cool)! I was seriously into it, and suddenly I stopped and laughed at myself and thought of the ridiculous things I do (or other people do) when in the elevator.

Really, it's just 10 seconds out of my day that I can be completely insane and nobody can see me! So, with that being said, here's a list I've compiled (and by compiled I mean totally made up) of funny things people do while in elevators:

  • Dance
  • Do a quick clothes adjust (did someone say wedgie?)
  • Dance ridiculously
  • Employ the face (or gesture) they wanted to use when having a "difficult" conversation with their coworker
  • Sing (this one is funny because the elevator is NOT sound proof)
  • Sniff check (for those of you who don't know this one, that would be head to the right, arm above head, sniff)
  • Handstands (really Kenz?)
  • Stretches

So the next time you're in the elevator I hope you think of this post. And I hope it makes you laugh. And I hope you do one of the things on that list. And speaking of the list, did I forget anything?

i like to jump, especially when going up more than 1 floor....

if you ever have a chance to go in the elevators in Children's Hospital in Seattle; take it... they are possibly the coolest elevators ever.

this did make me laugh :)
Because we are alone in the elevator, my sister(s) and I will say the things that we really wanted to say to each other that we couldnt say to each other in our previous enviornment... i.e. "you are such a dork" or "you are an embarrassment to nature"... other times, we just fight :) THEN, when we're not doing that, we watch kaitlyn do something completely ridiculous! (most of those things were listed in your post...) WOW. :p

I would mostly just like to point out the fact that MOST elevators have security cameras in them, in case of emergency..
so it's really not private, and probably there are people somewhere laughing at you.. (also, watch which clothes you adjust)

I like to pose.

And there are certainly no security cameras in the church elevator (I've done several thorough checks to insure my solitude before being absolutely silly).
