Note to Self

Dear Self,
When riding the apartment elevator sans offspring (offspring who regularly jostle to be the one to push The Button),
no one, no matter how kind they appear,
will read your mind and push the #5 button for you.
You WILL ride directly up to the floor of the person with whom you're sharing an elevator.
And, if the person happens to be a kind gentleman who holds the elevator door for you,
there will be an awkward moment when you realize you don't actually want to get off the elevator on his floor.
Plan accordingly for next steps.

So what DID you do? I would've gotten off at the wrong floor and taken the stairs to the appropriate one . . .

I would just take the stairs - better for you. 'Course you do walk everywhere so I suppose an elevator ride now and then isn't all bad.

Giggle. It works for us girls. It says, "I'm so cute, I forgot to push the button." Giggle, giggle.

I can't tell you how many times I've done this very thing! I think I've forgotten completely how to run elevators since having kids.

Sonny, I did consider getting off and pretending that I was doing exactly I as I intended, but instead I gave him a "it's none of your beeswax why, but I've decided NOT to get off the elevator at this point in time" look, and pressed the "door close" button.
That's what he gets for being chivalrous!
