On Friday I got stuck in a service lift at work for an hour. In between floors. I even prized the doors open (damaging my oldest ring in the process. Locked lift doors are stubborn) when it clanked to a stop and saw brick. While I was sitting on the floor, looking up at the mannequins standing above me, I really hoped I wasn’t going to die… at work. Of course, there was little chance I was going to die (unless the cable snapped or the oxygen ran out), but let me tell you it was the longest hour of my life. I was so bored! I didn’t have a watch or a phone, or anything to entertain myself (when I told the boyf this later on, he said he would have fashioned a ball out of the rubbish in there… my mistake). It was a strange experience though – I wasn’t scared or claustrophobic, I was just left with my thoughts and the odd person coming to a lift door and shouting to me. I thought about my boyfriend, my friends, my family, if I was going to get out in time to say goodbye to Carly on her last day, how strange my skin was, what my last words were, what I ate last (a slither of carrot cake I had made), what song I last heard, if I would mention this on my blog (obviously)… I tried not to think of the lift cable.
