High in the Sky
By Beth Beutler
1 I've discovered I'm afraid of heights. At least, I'm afraid of open heights. I always thought I liked tall buildings, but now I get a little nervous.
2 My dad, however, loves tall buildings. He says they look powerful. He travels to a lot of cities, and he takes us with him whenever he can. We've been to Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, and New York in just the last two years.
3 The first time we visit any city, we try to go downtown. We usually try to go to the top of the highest building. I remember one time when we were in Atlanta; we decided to have lunch at the top of the Westin Peachtree. There was a revolving restaurant up there, named the "Sun Dial."
4 We paid for access to a fast elevator that went to the top without stopping. Dad was very excited. I was nervous, but I didn't want to show it.
