I woke up with a jolt. Did Hubby say goodbye to me this morning? I thought hard. I squinted and thought harder. I remembered him talking to Brandy who was tucked tightly under the blankets like a hot dog. Was that today? Or was that yesterday?
Then I heard the radio from
the other bedroom. He snores.....end of story. It turns out he called
in "sick" today. He says he just didn't feel like going to work today. It must be nice.
drank my morning coffee and ate a bowl of blueberry Special K, which
incidentally does not have one single real blueberry in the whole box. I
guess that's what makes it so special. I watched a half hour of Live
with Kelly. During the second half of the show I climbed on my
stationary bike. I was three quarters through with my doctor prescribed
bike ride when the power went out. Not a flicker. Not a surge. Dead.
scrounged around for an A&W coupon and decided to go for a bus
ride. He'd never waste a perfectly good sick day by actually being
No power. No internet. No radio. No heat.
tried to mooch morsels of a smores poptart from me as we kept warm under
a blanket in the living room. The wind would kick up and the stove
vent flap would clang. Its raining and blowing and then I think.....I
haven't seen anyone.....not a soul on the street all morning.
There could be a zombie apocalypse and I'd never know it.
I sit with my eyes trained on the street pondering the idea.
my neighbour's van pulls into her drive and their two little kids
scamper out to the front door of their house. Neighbour Mom is behind
them toting a bag from A&W.
No zombies today I guess.
At least not yet.
hear the tv snap a little as current tries to surge through it but
nothing happens. Then the wind gusts and the oven vent clangs again.
