Power to the People
My power just came on -- it went off when it was just dark and everyone (Dave, Con, S., J., K.) was here -- cut us off from further cleaning, unfortunately, but the Monster's soup was ready, Connie's salad was in process, and Susan's popovers were already wrecked by someone using her recipe's milk, and me suggesting rice milk as a substitute which didn't work. My coverlet had just been put in the dryer -- so Con took things home to dry them there. I was totally annoying as usual, and kept playing "Police Interrogation" by shining flashlights at people and barking questions as to their whereabouts on certain dates. On the plus side, K. had his Anakin Skywalker costume on and kept saying he was going to the Dark Side. We played cards (Animal Rummy) and he won! He kept asking me for hard questions, so I asked him a million -- what's 1 + 1 (he got it right), the name of Connie's dog (paid off big even though he didn't remember as 5 minutes later Connie asked him if he remembered the dog's name!). Apparently on the Dark Side you have no friends, you don't go to school, and there are toy airplanes but they are old and someone left them outside where they were run over by a truck. He told me I could come to the Dark Side and yes, he would hold my hand if I got scared. Pretty good for 3½.
