National Talk in an Elevator Day
July 28, 2017 (Last Friday in July)

Today, defy convention and strike up a conversation with whoever happens into your building’s elevator. Listen intently when they speak. Ask thoughtful questions and provide insightful observations of your own. Ignore the obligations that brought you to this building and, instead, remain inside the elevator. Ride for hours. Make yourselves comfortable. Sit on the floor. New riders will come and go, and some may even join you. Make room for them. Build a small campfire in the elevator (protip: prop open the emergency door in the ceiling to allow smoke to escape), toast some s’mores, and tell some ghost stories. You’re going to have an awesome day.
