So you work from home on a laptop… Well once that battery dies, you’re a jobless hack.
So your bedroom’s sweltering like a Tatooine desert at high noon… Now you’re living in an Amish paradise, and you’ll have to deal with that for the next four to six hours.
So your car’s parked in the garage… Guess what, your new mode of transportation is now either your sweaty feet, or your daughter’s wicker basket- and fringe-laden bicycle. That is, unless He-Man happened to stay over and can lift the garage door for you. In which case, I have to ask: last night did you go on a total bender with your best friend, He-Man? Because that’d be pretty neat, and I bet he still knows how to have a good time even when the power goes out.
