Create a character who wants to become an elevator operator.
The hum of the motors, that feeling of gravity slipping away, then pressing down on your shoulders…I can never get enough of it. And I grin, as I ride up to the twentieth floor, my application and references tucked neatly in the folder beneath my arm.
With a familiar ‘ding’, the door opens, and the operator announces the floor, adjusting his cuff and the clean, white glove. I step off with the sort of confidence that you can only have when you know you’re ready for something.
I’ve studied the building, I know the history, and I’m entirely familiar with the technology. I’m as prepared as anyone could be.
Today is most definitely the day…
(Jared Paris, 27, has always loved elevators. From the time he was little, they completely fascinated him. The idea of being paid to use them all day, and to play tour-guide to new and interesting people? To good to resist.
And so, Jared’s greatest wish is to become…an Elevator Operator.
Yea, so it’s not that impressive. But you’ve got to admire his enthusiasm.)
