Heard in Davos 2009: Dispatches from the Conference

No One Can Beat Me


I am so winning this pedometer contest.

Not because I walk more than anybody. But because security backfired!

You can't walk down the street here without being forced through a metal detector. (Seriously. I have to walk through one to get from my hotel to the main hotel down the street.)

A security guard thought my state-issued pedometer looked iffy. So he made me take it off and send it through the detector.

When it went in to the detector, it had 5,000 something steps on it. When it came out, it read 22,000.

Whoops. I only did what the man said!
