Last night as I sat in my cushy dining room armchair trying to catch up on my google reader blogs (Yet I still somehow have 134 new items), two things came to mind:
1. I don’t feel like eating/cooking anything in my apartment
2. I must go deposit my sister’s rent check in the nearest ATM
So, naturally, I decided to walk to my local grocery store, get a salad bar, and deposit my check via ATM. I heard some thunder, so I figured that I should be quick so as not to get rained on and grabbed my umbrella just in case.
I go the ATM, successfully deposit the check, enter the grocery store, make my salad, and mosey on over to the natural foods section to pick up some oat bran. As I’m walking out of the section, I overhear two ladies talking about how they’re going to have plenty of time to keep talking, and I’m wondering what they mean by that when I look outside to see rain pouring down in sheets with lots of thunder and lightening to keep it company.
So I end up waiting in the entrance of the store with several other shoppers in similar predicaments. (Well, they at least had cars in the parking lot) Meanwhile, the power goes off in the grocery store and the generators kick in. (It was that kind of storm) Finally, the rain dies down to a pour and I walk home under the shield of my umbrella.
Upon arrival at the abode, I discovered that my power was out as well. Go figure. So, naturally, there was only one solution: light some candles, eat my food, and cut a watermelon:
L uckily, the power came back on an hour later, and I was able to go about my normal night (and morning, for that matter) routine.
What questionable decisions have you made lately?
