This week’s photo theme is “Down” and so I thought it would be a good time to show you our staircase. And admit that until last week, I was really confused when it came to figuring out what floor we actually lived on. You would think that climbing up all these stairs would make it really clear. And I kept counting but somewhere in climbing up all those stairs, I kept losing a level. And I did this nearly every day for a month. It would bug me because I never felt like I got it right but I thought we lived on the 6th floor (that would be 5th in Britain and France) so I just kept on trying to make the numbers work. It was a classic case of knowing what the outcome should be and trying to crunch the data to make it fit. So it wasn’t until I was outside our building that I realized it would be a lot easier to count the stories from the street than try to count them while I was climbing. And we live on the 7th story. I’m sort of embarrassed to admit it took me six weeks to figure that out, but it did, and that is that. The other weird thing about always having to climb and descend all these stairs, is that sometimes I swear it’s faster to descend than ascend.
Have a great weekend!
