Moving Walkway

SO, after traveling this weekend to D.C. and back for my cousin Hol's wedding, I decided that life should have moving walkways. Wouldn't that be great? If you were in a hurry, you could just jump on and double time it, makin it there in no time, even with all of your baggage. When you're on it, moving forward seems so effortless and you're passing everyone around you. You feel so light and weightless. If you felt particularly burdened by life, you could just jump on the moving walkway, let your things down, and coast for a bit. The most "annoying" thing would be if people in front of you are obstructing the way by standing. Many times you can slip right by them, but if you are forced to stand still because of them, you're still moving forward! You may get a little tripped up when you first get on and switch speeds. But before you know it, you're moving right along with the faster speed of life. You're keeping up and you're thriving. And when the fast pace walkway would end, there would be a voice saying "the moving walkway is ending" to prepare you for the slower pace of life coming up ahead. How great would that be?

Ah, the moving walkways. I like the idea, but I have to disagree. I think life is going fast enough!

Have you seen the movie "Click" with Adam Sandler? It's a lot like that idea. You should check it out and see if you still want your walkways. :)
