I had been wanting to try an escape room ever since I saw one in a movie several years ago.
It looked like a lot of fun, but I guess that depends on if you’re the one solving the clues. Some of those clues are so wacky, it would take a genius to solve them, and I am not a genius. When mom and dad brought me to see my older brother who had gotten married a year ago, I was excited. I had been reading about Orland Park, IL ever since my brother moved there. I was hoping he would take me to Escapology while I was there. He told me he had been to an escape room, but I was too young to take along. Maybe, now that I’m fourteen, he would be willing to take me to Escapology. Mom and Dad offered to take me while we were in Orland Park, but I wanted to go with my brother. He did agree to take me to Escapology, but it was snowing and only eight degrees the night we were to go. He was okay with driving in the snow, but his wife wasn’t. First she worried the heat in the car would go out. Then, she worried that if the car were to break down, he would freeze to death. She told him to wait until it was daylight and warmer. I thought she was wacky, but thankfully she was his wife, and they didn’t live with us. Just staying in their house over Christmas was enough to make me say I didn’t like her.
