I was not afraid. After all, I had food if I were trapped for any length of time, and the elevator was a good temperature so I wasn't about to be miserable in a cold or overly warm environment. I was released within 15 minutes after someone was instructed to pull the breaker. For the rest of the evening, the elevator was Out of Order.
I think for the first time in more than a decade, this evening, my eyebrows looked semi-normal. Of course, I pencilled them in to help with the illusion that they are doing their bit to enhance my face.
I have to say, no one sidled up to me to ask questions or to make comments. Felt good.
There was a woman a few years back in Ottawa who went out to the corner store to buy some milk and cigarettes and she must've tripped and fell into a snow bank. She was unable to get up and when a plough happen by a little later, the driver didn't see her and the still breathing person was buried and froze to death.
This is a bit of a moral tale. Over-dress for warmth and be careful.
