      Just not 'Do-si-so' stairs.

      I meant 'do-si-do'

      Which doesn't make it any funnier, I am afraid.

      I had to look it up, 'do-si-do'.

      wikipedia calls it a basic step in square dance. now I am picturing carlo scarpa doing square dance moves with corbusier and frank lloyd wright.

      I need to drink less coffee, I think.

      Those kinds of hallucinations tend to be caused by substances in a slightly different category than coffeine.
