One of my friends first met her husband in the elevator at work. They've been together over seven years now.

I think elevators are funny. I start a conversation and pray no one lets one rip.

I don't know if I told the forum about this or not but I had a work related accident earlier this year. I was coming down a utility type ladder that is attached to the side of a building, I don't know if you are familiar with those or not. Anyway as I was going down my hands slipped and I dropped several feet and was able to grab back on to the ladder without falling all of the way down. In the process I strained the hell out of my foot.

I was really lucky in that if I had fallen backwards instead of down I could have been killed.

I still have nightmares occasionally about it.

The strange thing is that I've always told Mrs. Chow that I had a "bad feeling" about that happening to me, and it surely did.

You're starting to get me all hot and bothered by "Mr Hot Pants".

This guy must be some sort of Stallion.

See? There IS something about inviting events in our lives... The more you think of something and are afraid of it, the more likely it is to happen...

I'm surpised that it took 10 post to get to the magic "fart" in an elevator trick.

No, really... I know two hypochondriacs who know everything about doctors, diseases, etc. who are constantly sick and going to doctors and hospitals and some of the stuff can't be faked... I'm not saying you'll win the lottery by sending positive vibes its way, but in my experience getting what you're afraid of is quite common. In the context of relationships, I've never been afraid of cheating and never had a cheater, for example. Now let's hope I didn't jinx myself with this post.
