This is another edition of Friday Dance Party on Acorns On Glen. It’s the time where we give thanks for making it through another week and for being alive and present here on Earth. How do we celebrate another week of living? We dance. So, are you alive this Friday? Are you and your family safe and sound? Take a few seconds now to be in the moment and realize what a great life you truly have. Did you give thanks for that?
Good, now let’s dance.
So what do you do at night when you don’t have electricity for 8 days? You drink. I mean, what else can you do? There is no food in the refrigerator anymore because it had to be tossed out. You’ve already devoured most of your dry goods like crackers and cookies. You can’t buy new groceries as you don’t really have a way to put them away in the pitch black darkness. So, you raid the liquor cabinet and drink your sorrows away. It doesn’t matter what you really grab as the alcohol, any alcohol, serves multiple purposes (not one being great taste). The booze:
- Takes your mind off of your electricity woes,
- Makes you forget that you’ve only taken a whore’s bath for the last eight days because you can’t take a complete shower (you know what a whore’s bath is….a little water on the important parts of your body and then out the door),
- Makes you forget that the only way you can access the internet is at the shelter set up in the recreation center for
old peoplesenior citizens (I don’t need to hear, “Can I log on with you Sonny’),
- Enables you to laugh at the fact that you’ve had the same pants on for the last four days because you can’t do laundry,
- Enables you to sleep (in a passed-out fashion) in a 49 degree house.
If we had music, the dark house would also enable you to dance like crazy to this week’s song. Given the importance of alcohol this last week, it was only fitting to play Taio Cruz’s ‘Hangover’. You’ve made it through another week and you deserve to celebrate. Grab a glass of wine and turn your speakers up and dance. Hopefully, it’s in a house with electricity…yikes! What other home remedies can you think of that cure the “no electricity” blues?
