up when you're across.

yesterday, lizzie, the work study girl in the dean's office, called me. "somebody dropped something off from wascla. should i just bring it on up?" "sure," i said, "that would be great." "okay," she said. "okay," i said, "thanks." a few minutes later, she showed up at my desk with a big binder in her hands. "i don't know why i said 'up,'" she said. "what?" i asked. "i don't know why i said 'up' when you guys are across." she motioned with her arms to illustrate what 'across' meant. "oh yeah," i said.
