6:50pm – Deena asks if I have read Beau’s blog today. I remind her that it is early yet and I am not to the point in my day where I feel the need to do something that then causes me to realize it is time for bed, so no, I havn’t read Beau’s blog.
8:50pm – Begin to read Beau’s blog entry about Power Outage 09. I wonder if I should continue with this great read or reassemble all the paper in my shredder. The lid to the shredder is stuck. Beau win’s this round.
8:51pm – A thought deep in the recesses of my mind tells me that I already know the ending to Beau’s dramatic retelling of last nights event and I should just go lay down.
8:52pm – I too, like Daisy, turn my head back and forth at Beau’s ramblings. I too, like Daisy, fully understand what Beau is saying but wonder why I have yet wasted another moment of my life taking in his ramblings when I could be eating a snack, sleeping on my bed, or staring out the window at passing cars and racoons.
8:53pm – Just as I suspected, Beau’s story ends well with Joey, Daisy, and him all surviving the storm. I knew it would as I had not recieved a phone call from Joey or Daisy at any point in the day wanting me to begin Will readings and inheritance proceedings.
8:54pm – I briefly consider backing up and removing the 781 posts that is Beau’s life this past 2 years, but quickly realize that would only result in a frantic call/text/email to me. I pretend it all never happened and make my way to bed to sleep it all off.
