Semi crash causes pea spillage

Things that are difficult:

  • Eating peas with a fork

Things that are almost impossible:

  • Eating peas with a fork in complete darkness

Last night, I was very much looking forward to the opportunity to watch Ugly Betty live for the first time (rather than on tape or on the Internet), since The Office was a repeat. Then at just about 8pm, the power went out. I waited for a few minutes, but it didn't come back. I panicked at first, because I had to traverse the clutter of my apartment to scrounge around for my flashlight, whose batteries turned out to be of questionable power. I was picturing being stuck in the darkness, unable to move for fear of knocking things over and stepping on things. Then I talked to Andy on the phone and he asked me if I had any candles, which of course I did. I am an idiot and had forgotten how people survived in Ye Olden Tymes before eckeltricity. Since I no longer had to panic about my one source of light giving up, I was able to sit around bored in the candlelight instead of sitting around bored in the darkness. I could finally finish my dinner, instead of blindly stabbing at peas.

The lights eventually came back on, but I was so bored I just went to bed.
