“Ready?” Thalia laces her sneakers. “Fifteen hundred fifty stairs, with a bonus twelve fifty-one if we can keep going.” Nia reads from the Climb for Air’s website. “An experiment…” Calliope reminds herself, “… to see what we are made of.” Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
Oooooh, stairs... I calculated how many stairs I went up about ten years ago when our basement flooded, carrying a bucket of water each time, and it came to more than three climbs up the Washington Monument. I think yours is more. No bucket, though. 😁 (And yes, we invested in sump pumps. Actually TWO pumps, because even when you test periodically, when are you most likely to find out about a pump failure? 🌊💦)
