Isn’t it amazing that when the power goes off that all of a sudden a number of tasks seem very important but strangely, that all of these involve electricity. One doesn’t normally think of these jobs-to-do but once the power goes off that these, and without reason suddenly and mysteriously appear at the top of the priority list.
There are the carpets which require vac’ing, there are the shirts which need ironing..and all involve electricity. Might this be a natural human reaction? A subliminal suggestion that minus electricity that one must automatically do those things which require the aforementioned electricity?
And of course these days once cannot even make a phone call. Call Country Energy to advise them of the aforementioned lack of electricity? This of course is not a possibility due to the lack of the same aforementioned electricity. Use one’s mobile phone? Again not a possibility because naturally the mobile needs to be recharged. Again no electricity.
Then night time comes and one hopes; surely there must be someone else in the neighborhood who has noticed the aforementioned lack of electricity plus has their mobile phone fully charged. Sadly, this always seems to not be the case. An eerie silence descends upon the neighborhood.
Given the above scenario I rapidly discovered that I was manually incapable of rubbing two sticks together and so opted for the scented tea candles sent to me last Christmas.
Glad tidings, no doubt brought upon by the karma-induced benevolence brought upon by the aforementioned Christmas tea candles the electricity resumed service after 4 hours and I once again entered the 21st Century.
Oh yes, as an aside I thought to cook dinner on the barbeque…it was out of gas.
As we haven’t had a music topic for quite some time, here is a challenge..songs about electricity or things pertaining to, or in fact anything remotely connected.
Please also consider this an open topic for the weekend.
