August 31, 2007 Urban Word of the Day
The act of people in an elevator staring up, uncomfortably, at the numbers as they light up when the car moves. Practiced out of nervousness.
When the elevator began moving, silence ensued as each person practiced their elevision.
The small video monitors that are now often featured in the elevators of big, newer business buildings. They show headlines, weather, sports scores, trivia, etc. They are also impossible to take your eyes off of, no matter how many times you've already seen what they're showing.
Now people have an excuse not to look at each other in elevators. They just keep their eyes on the elevisions.
