How to Get Stuck in a Museum Box

 

In case you were wondering how you to get stuck in a box in front of a ton of people in a museum, follow this simple recipe that I have perfected:’

STEP #1: FIND A BOX

A simple first step, you must find a box to get stuck in. The particular box I chose was an exhibit from The Alive Museum in Seoul, South Korea.

STEP #2: INVESTIGATE THE BOX

Now, this box looked very boxy. It looked like a good box. A box that would be good to climb inside. I looked around, and there were no other people trying to get inside. This would be a foul proof plan.

STEP#3: CLIMB INSIDE OF THE BOX

I climbed inside the box.

STEP #4: SOLIDIFY PRESENCE INSIDE THE BOX

Feet first, I wiggled my way inside. I nestled into place, exhaling all of my problems away. My legs hugged my body, and for once, I felt complete. This was what happiness felt like.

STEP #5: UNSUCCESSFULLY ATTEMPT TO LEAVE THE BOX

After a couple of seconds, I figured it was time to get out. I put my hands on the side of the box and lifted.

 

I went absolutely nowhere.

 

I tried again, and in a strange realm of physics, it was almost like I sunk deeper into the box.

STEP #6: PANIC

I felt my chest tighten as the clock to the rest of my life ticked away, my ears were ringing, my palms were sweaty knees weak arms spaghetti I didn’t know what I was going to do. I was going to die in this box. This was my death.

In a box.

In an interactive museum.

 

STEP #7: CALL FOR HELP

I screamed, yelled, cried. I still had so many places I wanted to go: Bali, Thailand, Greece, Colorado (so I can steal a mattress from my roommate back in boulder). I still had so many cute restaurants I wanted to badly Instagram. This was not supposed to be my end.

STEP #8: WATCH YOUR FRIENDS LAUGH

They laughed.

STEP #9: ACCEPT THAT YOU WILL BE INSIDE BOX FOREVER

Day 62….children leave food offerings so that I will not starve. This is my new life.
