Twice this week, people have discouraged me from walking!
Today, I asked the man at the information booth if I could WALK to the other airport terminal. He said, “yes, walk to that bus and it will take you there.” But, I could see the other terminal! I asked if I could just walk all the way there. He looked at me, puzzled, and answered “yes.” And so I walked a half mile there (and back).
Earlier this week, I was walking down 4 flights of stairs from the ballroom of the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago. A waiter stopped me, and told me I was going the wrong way, and pointed out the way to the elevator. But I could see and hear the lobby below me! I asked him, “can’t I just continue down these stairs and get to the lobby?” He, too, looked at me, puzzled, and answered “yes.”
