hungry high up

i've often wondered if the rich people who live in the burj dubai khalifa think it's worth it. sure, they get to live in the tallest building in the world. the building is really beautiful and no doubt their views are spectacular. but can you imagine all the hassles that must come from living 0.6 km in the air? how many times have you stepped outside and realized you forgot something? when that happens to me, just the idea of running inside and up a single flight of stairs seems like a big deal.

and now, on top of everything else, they need to fast longer. okay, only by a few minutes. but those last few minutes must really feel like a big deal. i guess they can solve the problem by having iftar on the ground.
