If you read the "sky mullet" post, you know where we are now.
After the successful "baby osprey dropped mullet" recovery mission, I headed up to my 2nd story classroom to accomplish my official mission... the final cleanup of my classroom.
I was actually looking forward to it as this was the day that I was getting rid of a couple hundred pounds of ancient textbooks and junk. It was all stuff that I had sort of lived with since coming to teach at Cedar Key School 4 years ago.
There were ancient text book sampler kits, battered out of date texts, and even the old smelly blue ink mimeograph machine.
It was going to be a heavy load, so to save the backs of our very hardworking custodial staff, I decided to go get the big rolling dolly cart from the front office.
That would require the elevator and the dolly was usually parked in the front office right next to the elevator.
I stepped into the elevator, pushed 1, and the doors closed.
The elevator began to descend...
It was a memorable Tuesday, and I can now check
"Escape from elevator" off my bucket list.
And of course, many thanks to Liz, Chief Virgil, and the firefighter whose name I did not get.
