Writing Prompt: The Thirty-Seventh Floor

Writing prompt The following is the very first writing prompt that was ever posted on the site. I thought it would be fun to revisit the idea, and see what people come up with this time around!

An elevator got stuck on the 37th floor of a skyscraper. One or more people were stuck in the elevator. Write a short story or story fragment about what happened.

A possible first sentence: "On the day the elevator got stuck on the 37th floor, Jeff's life was forever changed."
