At least it’s not floor 7 1/2; who wants to end up on the Jersey Turnpike?
You laugh, but it’s the Jersey Turnpike that convinced me that while Earth may be spherical, her surface is of a higher dimension we unfortunate terrestrials cannot perceive. It’s always easier to be sucked into New Jersey than it is to escape! I think the Turnpike is a sort of linear black hole….
How do you know that Floor 13 is really between Floor 12 and Floor 14? If I was a clever bureaucrat, I’d hide Floor 13 between two other adjacent floors where no one, except those who filled out the proper paperwork in triplicate three years ago, would suspect.
“Why is floor thirteen between twenty-three and twenty-four?”
“Oh, ‘Thirteen’ is simply its name. Two floors after that we have ‘Floor Daryl’, and then ‘Floor Wilfordshire-on-the-Pond’ after that, then ‘Floor Krasnaya Lisitsa’, then—”
“Are we at eighteen yet?”
“We’re going up; that one’s in the basement.”
We should have done it like that.
