We Don’t Need No Steenkin’ Electricity!
Oh, I am such a fibber.
YES WE DO.
We especially need electricity on another hot hot hot day after spending the third of three hot hot 12-hour agility trial days running around in endless activity. A brownian motion woman, that was me, unless you count those times of intense activity, in which case I guess I was just going orbital, atom-wise.
(Yah, there would have been doggy video today, but no…since the electricity came back on moments before I’m about to fall face first into that nice soft bed, it’ll happen another time.)
I used to get along without electricity pretty well. These days? The office is everything, and the office is one giant electrical field. The health support stuff is everything, and it takes a working fridge. And coming home from that trial in all that hot when you’re a person of compromised thermoregulation and all the ice water from the day is gone…
Well, I took a cold shower. REALLY cold, since we have a hot-on-demand water heater, meaning there was none in reserve to take the edge off. And I hosed DuncanHorse off; he hasn’t been doing well in this heat and with the vaccines he got this past week. And I made a list of the things I wanted from the fridge for food and then made a strategically swift snatch and grab for dinner. I might have whined just a little.
Also, while it was still daylight, I transcribed the handwritten story pages from time I snatched at the trial into the netbook, and added a bit too it. *muse smugly pats self on back*
Coulda been worse. The cable could have stayed out once we got the power back.
What do you do when the power’s out at your place?
