Ascendancy

Up and down, down and up, that’s all I’ve done almost since that Otis guy invented my older brother. It can be boring. There are those times when I just want to try sideways for a change.

OWW! Watch that thumb, fella. Push the button gently! You don’t have to mash it. I won’t move any more quickly. I’ve been to the fifth floor; it’s boring.

Oh no, here comes “The Kid.” You know, we don’t have to stop at every floor! Where’s your mother?

I think I’ll unhitch my cables, and just go lurk in the basement for a while.
