1. Moscow Metro Racing
In the metro stations here, the escalators down to the platforms are notoriously long. Most Muscovites stand on the right side while descending, chatting or staring deeply into their beloveds’ eye, but some frenzied folk take to the left and gallop. I am one of those. Feet flying, wind whishing, standees overtaken in a blur–there is no more invigorating way to start one’s day. Let the games begin!
2. Blood Test or LSAT?
Sometimes when I am down, I consider if I would rather endure a blood test or the LSAT. Invariably the answer is “No.” This cheers me up.
