It was a typical summer day.
Scorching hot temperature
Watched some One Tree Hill
Went to Starbucks
And hung out with a friend
Then…the power went off…
DUN DUN DUNNNN
But there wasn’t even a thunder storm or anything so how could that be?
It was around 4:30 in the afternoon and everybody was home except for Eric.
My mom thought that maybe since everybody was cranking their air conditioners up that it was due to the that…but according to her blackberry (which came in handy) she found out there was a fire at the transformer by Kipling station.
Poor Stephen Harper had to wait an extra hour to have dinner with the Queen. Darn.
I was so bored!
I laid on my bed texting Danielle and Ashley, but even that didn’t last long. I could have read a book or magazine but I wasn’t in the reading mood. I had A LOT of energy and wanted to do something.
So I started to clean my room.
Yes, I was THAT bored that I cleaned my room.
I went through a drawer that had a bunch of my old high school English and History notes in it. I found many interesting things, but the thing that amused me the most was the big pink telephone from Dream Phone.
Oh Dream Phone…that game was played at every sleepover.
So I thought hey…maybe it still works.
And it did!
I let out a girlish giggle and started to dial random numbers, remembering the fact that the numbers started with 555.
I didn’t get very far and didn’t end up finding out who liked me although I really really really hoped it was either Steve or Matt because those were the hot ones;) it amused me for a while and then I thought.
Wow Jackie…you know you’re bored when you decide to play Dream Phone…by yourself…
That was the bad side of the power going out, the good side was good old family bonding.
James brought me a big bowl of Cookies n Cream ice cream which I volunteered to finish up…I didn’t want it to melt okay!
And I had a two hour cleaning session in my room.
So yeah as sad that it is that the power went out…I accomplished a lot.
So next time the lights go out think of the bright side of the situation!
