An Ode to Electricity
~Electricity how I love thee
~Let me count the ways
~You keep my air conditioned in the manner I have become accustomed
~You keep my ice cream frozen
~And my water hot
~You connect my computer to the world wide web
~My lights they glow when it is dark outside
~And my toaster oven toasting my mini frozen pizza
~I never want to be without you.
This is dedicated to the AEP linemen who got some major overtime last night.
For that I am very grateful!
PS. I learned a few things last night.
1. People don’t stay inside when it is 90º outside and the electricity is off. Children quickly forget about the television and run and play like little kids should. Adults tend to congregate on neightbor’s porches.
2. While some neighbors are congregating and their son comes to see what they want from Pizza Hut, and I suggest cheesy bread, I am asked if I want bacon on it.
Bread, cheese, and bacon…oh happy day!
I should write an Ode to Bacon.
