Feel The Power... Or Not.

My compatriot's recent experience with the dark is something I've been able to relate with quite well for the past two nights. Now I know what you're thinking; and yes toast is delicious but that really isn't relevant. I am of course aware that night has a particular and persistent relationship with the dark. But this is the 21st century and light is something that bends to our will; a force we command as if we were a medieval wizard. Unless the power goes out. Then our attempts to command the elements make us look more the court jester than a wizard. The past two nights we've experienced a series of power outages which left us completely in the dark despite our normal command of the photon. Ordinarily this would be only a minor inconvenience as I am in possession of several flashlights; however it is suprisingly difficult to locate said lights at 3am in a pitch black room. If only I'd had a light.
