Dialogue-ing in my head

"Houston. We have a problem."

I know. The cat's whining for food. But he's so cute when he whines. In fact, I sort of encourage him to whine. I know that's not what you want to hear, but do you want me to lie?

"No. That's not the problem."

But HE IS whining.

"NO, your electricity is out. As in not ON, not WORKING, not DOING ANYTHING FOR YOU. Well, except for this one outlet in the kitchen, which ironically is the outlet that houses the Internet access. You're still online, but you won't be able to see after dark. And your food might spoil."

Does that mean the cat will stop whining?

"Once you feed him, yes. But no, not until then."

Yes Houston, it seems we do have a problem, and it has nothing to do with the cat. Or maybe we just have more than one problem. But at least I have Internet access, that's one less problem than I could have. (Look, the glass is half full). Without the Internet access, I'd have more than just one or two problems. But I already said that.

"What's your problem?"

What do you mean what's my problem, You already told me my problem. I'm without electricity. THAT'S MY PROBLEM. I guess I should get myself in the shower and stuff. So that, if and when I can't see anymore tonight, well, I mean I can see, but I'll have to see in the dark, I'll be all dressed and ready to go out.

"Maybe you should do that then."

Yeah. Maybe. Since I have nothing more to say to myself now. Well, I mean I do, but it's not all that interesting.

Sex fact for today: Horomonally speaking, both men and women reach their "sexual peaks" in their mid-20s.
