"Doors do not open from the outside. Exit only through the lobby."
We were reading the sign on the fire escape. The door didn’t look like it could lock so we tested it. I went outside while he stayed inside so that if the doors did lock he could open it from inside for me. The doors opened from the outside with no problem. From there we made our descent down the fire escape of one of LA’s oldest and grandest hotels. The mission was to get to the sealed off second floor balcony. All the stairways sealed off the second floor and the elevators skipped it. After reaching the second floor on the fire escape we leaped out of a window to get to the balcony overlooking Pershing Square.
Adventure is my greatest friend. I’m not mischievous. I just have an appreciation for places that are rarely explored. Sometimes the risk in the journey just makes it all the better. It’s like drinking that drink at a club. It just makes what you’re doing more fun and I love getting intoxicated with risk! I could tell you that the best dates I have been on involved exploring underground tunnels, abandoned towns, setting up camp in restricted camp spaces, and hiking way past midnight.
I feel these are relatively great ways to test a guy’s character.
How open minded is he?
Will he respect the space?
How brave is he?
How quick is he when faced with danger.
Of course I would never suggest anything that would actually get us into (much) trouble.
After gazing at Pershing Square’s ice skaters we found a door that led to the sealed off second floor. We scoped the windows for any body who could potentially bust us. There was nothing but holes in the dry walls, water stains, and mysterious stains all over the carpet. The whole second floor was completely vacant. At one time this whole floor was where the hotel’s administrators worked. Shelves with labeled documents of bills, purchase orders, and other finances cleared that up for us. Perhaps the hotel decided to do their administration out of house?
Through it all the fellow I brought was wide eyed through the whole experience. Often times he led the charge to explore new spaces. Not once did it ever seem too much for him, a great indication that his curiosity for adventure matched my own.
There will be a second date.@1 day ago with 2 notes
