#FlashFriday #34 : Poor Planning

The second relief team was lucky. Their car got stuck a hundred or so feet above the ground. They’d already been rescued.

We hadn’t been so lucky. We were 1,100 miles above the ground, on our space elevator ride to the geosynchronous station when it got stuck. Air wasn’t a problem. It came through the cables. The agency radioed, “It’ll take three days to reach you.”

Three days. In an elevator. Without a restroom.
