At my last signing, we sat next to the escalator. Which was, maybe, a good move. After all, anybody who wanted to get to the Sci-Fi/Fantasy section had to go upstairs. So did the kiddies headed to the Wizard of Oz Tea Party. But, honestly? I think most of them were more interested in the magical escalator.
Who wouldn't be? Personally, I think the ability to climb to a second story without once lifting your knees (and vice versa) gets you as close to up-up-and-away as you're likely to go without benefit of a jet pack. In fact, when I was in sixth grade, my buds and I were so enamored of the escalator at the museum we were supposed to be exploring that the security guard threw us off it, forcing us to resort to the elevator for our kicks.
Hubby doesn't understand the attraction--surely we would've had more fun checking out the mammoth bones? I figure I'm just easily entertained.
Which is why, without benefit of dancing clowns or spiked punch, I'm still having a blast meeting Jazfans at every stop along my Great Midwestern Book Tour (Plus Tennesee)! The last stop is this Saturday in Aurora, Illinois. Details below....hope you can make it! In the meantime, I would so love to hear stories of what you've been thrown off--or out--of. I'm sure they beat mine by miles!
