“Mom? What happened?”
“A tree fell and took down the power lines in back.”
“PG & E is turning the electricity off in 5 minutes, you’ll have to turn off the video games and go outside.”
“What? But we’re in a middle of a battle! Can’t you tell them to wait?”
“Sure. I’ll just march right up there and say, “Excuse me, I know you are here on your Saturday, and this tree could have killed someone, and I realize you have all those hot lines down and such, with the firemen here in case there’s a fire, but do you think you can sit tight for about 45 minutes UNTIL MY SON AND HIS FRIEND FINISH THEIR VIDEO GAME BATTLE!?!?””
“Gee Mom, you don’t need to get that worked up about it.”
Until next time –
