Ugh. Because I am crazy and the things that I need to get out of my head and onto virtual paper could cause safety issues, this week on the blog will be a very light update week. Like, just a couple of sentences light. Today’s short, random thoughts will be on how dependent I am on electricity. The power went out at the house because of the ice storms. I didn’t panic until I realized the following: (a) I use my cell phone as my alarm clock; (b) my cell phone drains its battery like ravenous mosquitoes suck blood from their victims, which is why I plug it in as soon as I get home; (c) the heat in the house runs on electricity; (d) all of the phones in the house are cordless so they won’t work during a power outage; and (e) all of my breakfast items are in the refrigerator, which you’re not supposed to open during a power outage to preserve as much of the cold that’s in there as possible.
Y’all. I don’t know whom I’m kidding when I recruit and plan for my apocalypse teams, when I think Cleon has proven that I am too soft for agrarian society.
