We run, unashamedly, through the crowds, moments to go. Every other platform has an escalator. Why, cruel God, why. I can't run. Hampton has pulled her butt muscles. Stairs are the spawn of Satan. We finally burst onto the platform, breathless. Before us, the conductor looks at us, blinks, and raises his paddle. The doors close. The train slides away. Despair.
