Growing up, it was always kind of fun when we were without power. Being the Midwest, we always had SEVERE THUNDERSTORM warnings and tornadoes swirling around, so we spent a good deal of time in our basement eating popcorn and listening to the battery-operated radio.
Well, it's not so much fun when you're an adult--or pretending to be one. After a few hours of reading, I took a nap. Then I woke up and went to the gym. I came home to find the power still off and the apt. pitch black.
So, I did what any normal person would do in the same situation: I got drunk by candlelight.
(Well, not really. I had 2 glasses of wine and didn't feel like stumbling downstairs in the dark for more, but for the sake of drama I'll say I got drunk.)
The power was still off this morning when I woke up. (sigh) I'll hopefully get back up to speed shortly.
