Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.

Flash Post 292!

Button, you do know what an elevator is, don’t you?

It’s something that gives you a high. Something that makes you feel good.

Not a mood elevator, you fool. What’s the elevator I’m talking about?

You mean a lift! Why can’t you just call a lift a lift? Why do you need to use complex words!

It’s not a complex word.

It is. For me.

You do know that without a “lift”, you would have to climb several floors if you wanted to reach a higher storey.

You mean story?

How, in God’s earth, does story figure here? I meant floor. The other word for floor is storey and, if you notice, it is spelt as storey!

I now see the difference. I thought you were about to tell me another story. But climbing storeys would have been an excellent workout!

What if you had to climb 30 storeys! Could that have been a great workout or would it have meant death for the person climbing up?

Death for sure.

What I want to tell you is that the first elevator was installed at Kolkata’s Raj Bhavan by Otis in the year 1892.
