Many people were reluctant to believe that anyone could have survived such an ordeal but there was proof on film of the survivors making extremely interesting choices. Although the film is entirely silent, the three passengers in the elevator were able to scavenge some U-clamps from the underside of the access panel. One of the people trapped in the elevator was an extremely methodical advertising executive with the mind of an engineer: he was the one who discovered the solution to their predicament, with the help of a tube of tooth paste this group really won the lottery: they were able to adjust the mechanism that kept the elevator from sliding too quickly and caught a ledge where they could jerk open the door just in time to avoid the jostling journey to the bottom of the shaft.
Though he made an uncertain engineer, the ad exec's application of trial and error saved the group's lives.
"I'd trust him with my life - even if a meteor was approaching, I think he could find a solution!" gushed one passenger. After being whisked away by social services and police, the ad exec was honored with an engraved wrist watch for his heroism and quick thinking.
You can have the rest of this story to do with what you will - your milage may vary. Good luck with your stories, I'm not feeling very creative tonight but I can probably get to 300 words with a whole lot of nonsense. If I was able to catch a fire fighter off guard then I would include one in this story.
My cat George says it's time to wrap this up before he dies of boredom. We don't like to talk about his health these days. This whole exercise reminds me of automatic writing.
Maybe we can get to 400 words with the crack of a whip and a whistle. My mom says that we should all be quiet and watch antiques roadshow - those people are absolutely hilarious. If they can all get so excited about thrift store finds and old lamps, maybe they could get excited about this writing exercise. Are we not done yet ? what's the next challenge? Time to get the laundry done. Quick brown fox jumped over the lazy brown dog or red dog who cares eeni meeni e minehy moo sdljkdhf fsldjkhfs sdf sd
