Anytime you get on an escalator, you’ve got two choices: either you lean to the side and just enjoy the ride or you frantically run up it like a spaz. It’s pretty obvious which choice a cool person must make.
Granted, if you’re cool you’ve probably got places to be and appointments to keep. Think of the escalator ride as your little oasis amid the madness of your day. Bust a lean and reflect on all the cool things you’ve done today and all the cool things you’re about to do. Catch your breath, read an ad on the wall, invent a backstory for the couple in front of you.
Look, if you madly sprint up or down the escalator, you’re going to get sweaty. Cool people don’t sweat.
