Although the electricity was off for an hour and a half last night, and although it came back on at exactly three o'clock in the morning (which would lead me to believe in a conspiracy, if there were any reason to conspire to have the power return exactly and precisely on the hour), I had a decent night's sleep, much better than the night before when man's power was turned off by nature's power.
(And by "man," I mean, of course, "man." In the old-fashioned non-gender-specific sense. So as not to offend anyone of any gender. Which I'm sure I have anyway. Sorry.)
The reason I slept better last night is simple. I was exhausted from being up most of the previous night. When I'm too tired to race around the house obsessively resetting all the clocks, it's a good thing. I sleep straight through my obsession. And in this case, I didn't even bother to set the clocks until I'd been up for— well, I don't really know how long, do I? Because the clocks weren't working. Let's call it fifteen minutes. Or we can call it an hour and fifteen minutes, if that's more impressive.
I still needed a nap this afternoon, but it was okay, because I found time to take one. A quick one, late in the day, which might keep me up later tonight. But this is about good things that happened today. Let's not borrow any trouble for tomorrow.
