15 days on the top floor without the call button on the lift. You cannot walk down the stairs, although someone who is downstairs can send the lift up for you. What would you do?
Tonight, I’m setting my readers a challenge. What is the most imaginative way you can think of pressing the lift button on the first floor when you can’t leave the second floor.
Here are the constraints of this challenge. You must imagine:
- your walking is so impaired you use a wheelchair to get around
- you have limited muscle strength
- you only have what you have in your home now as materials
- there is an open balcony between you and the first floor lift button. (If you were able to hang from the balcony like a bat, you can see the call button on the lift)
My first suggestion was a slingshot propelled from a long pole with a mirror attached so you can see.
My second suggestion is to train the cat to walk down the stairs and leap at the button, hop in the lift and return to the top.
My first suggestion is far more likely to happen.
Ok, let’s hear it! How would you send the lift up?
