And Then, it all Went Black... AGAIN!

I strode purporsefully toward the stove, a medium sized bag of frozen chicken stir fry held in my hot little hands.  As I reached the row of tiles in front of the large stainless steel appliance I heard a very loud KABOOOOM! 

I whirled around and stared at the fridge.  Had I dropped something?  Did something heavy fall off the counter?  Turning back around I looked at the oddly darkened stove.  The microwave was blank.  The overhead fan whirred to a staop.

"GOD FRICKIN' BLESS IT! THE MOTHERF'N POWER IS FRIGGIN' OUT AGAIN?!  YOU'VE GOT TO BE FRICKIN' KIDDING ME!!!"  On and on I raged as I tossed my packed of chicken and veggies back into the warming freezer and stamped out to the garage, keys held in my cold hands.

I pushed the button to open the garage before remebering that it won't work without electricity.  I opened the car door, tossed in my purse and keys and stomped to the large door.  I yanked on the red string that dangled from the ceiling with enough force that I feared for a moment that I would accidentally rip off the entire garage door.  I then yanked on the inside handle with all my might all the while cursing and stomping like a deranged person.

But can you really blame me? CAN YOU?  This is where you all shake your head encouragingly at your monitor, k?

On a better note - I've read the last Harry Potter book ever.  I'm happy to have been able to read it and sad it's over.   Anyone else read it?  Email me your thoughts:  h0llyk911@aol.com!
