Sharing a laugh
Well, I want to share a laugh with you before Jack and I take off for our trip tomorrow. We were hit with bad weather again last night. Once again we were under a tornado watch. i know, you are thinking and what is so funny about that. Well it isn't funny! Not at all. But about 11:30 last night I was here on the computer playing a game, Jack was watching an old movie on television. Suddenly, we lost power and boy was it dark! I could not see my hand in front of my face unless it lightening. What was fun was trying to find the power strip to shut it off in case the power tried to come on and then went off. So finally managed to do that without hitting my head on the desk or falling out of my chair. Jack and I were talking back and forth not wanting to go far in the dark. But after about a half hour in the office chair, I had a bad case of petrified rump! And I decided to try and make it to the living room. I found Jack's hobby desk and used it to find my way to the doorway. Then I inched along the hallway until I made it to the living room doorway. Then came the big leap of faith. I had to make it across the living room to the sofa. YIKES! I asked Jack to talk to me so I could follow his voice and I was able to hold onto the CD cabinet and then the t.v. which got me a little more than halfway. So picture me the rest of the way, bent over, hands out in front of me searching for the sofa! Made it! Yippee!!!!!! My victory was short lived though! I was thirsty because it was stuffy without a fan running and I needed a potty run. Why couldn't the potty run hit me as I was passing the bathroom? Made it to the kitchen for some water and even managed to make it to the bathroom and back to the sofa just fine! Then we set waiting for lights and watching the storm. All told, the lights were out for over an hour. I have had enough of storms this year. I am waving the white flag in surrender! LOL! I hope this story makes you smile! God bless and see you this weekend!
