Farewell

Mrs. Lee took us to dinner tonight to thank and congratulate two teachers who will be leaving on Tuesday.
Rule of thumb: Never say no to a free meal.While we dining we noticed a curious sign. 'Descending Life Line'. Since the restaurant is on the seventh floor of a building and Koreans don't really believe in fire escapes, this was their solution. I'd hate to be the one to try it out.

Ha! Stephanie and I lived on the tenth floor of our building and we had one of those descending life lines. We continually joked about who was going to be the lucky person to actually retrieve the ONLY descending life line, and which one of us would have to run out into the apartment corridor to get the other one.

Well all emergency escape devices have some risk... I would be fine using it in an actual emergency, but I wouldn't want to test it. There was that Korean motehr riding a fire truck basket when she died after falling out of it. Or you hear the stories of sailors testing lifeboats on large ships dying. Though this seems more interesting then a rope...
