I've gone and done it again.

You might recall the funny glasses that I purchased on our last shopping trip into the city. Just in case you're suffering from an advanced case of oldtimer's disease or you are new here, I present this famous photo that I presented on Making a Spectacle of Myself.

Well, they've been working so well, that I decided that I could use even more illumination in my life.

Before you conclude that AC has gone completely bonkers, permit me to tell my little story.

You see, summer is almost here, and any day now, Cuppa will turn on the fans, and they will run almost non-stop until sometime in September. Most of these fans, at least in our upstairs, are ceiling fans. In other words, they are connected to lights which are connected to switches at the relevant doorways.

Well then: obviously, one simply cannot run lights at all times, especially since most are either in bedrooms or where they can be seen from bedrooms. And so it comes to pass that every summer, whislt my beloved sleeps, I must prowl in the dark because I am not about to go running willy nilly in search of dangling chains to turn on lights. Anyway ... how would I begin to see such chains in the pitch black if I were to wish to yank them? My life is difficult beyond measure, I tell ya.

And so, I have purchased my own personal, little CSI light and can now stealth about like Dr Gil Grissom and company. Actually, mine should be termed a CSITD (Can't See in the Dark) light or maybe CSITDN (Can See in the Dark Now) light. Either way, it works for me.

If you need someone to gather any deep, dark evidence on your behalf, just get in touch.

Actually that looks really handy, small enough and kind of cool looking.

We had the power go out here on the weekend for a couple of hours and could have used one.

I enjoyed that post. Got a good laugh. Whatever it takes to survive I always say, and then have a good laugh. Just love Gil.

Survival is of the utmost importance. Enjoyed your post and yes, we did support Tims day camp yesterday.

Oh, by the way, Aunt May's radio was always on. She had a little transistor. At home it was country and western.

I will have to share this with my husband who has taken to buying all manner of flashlights, of late.
Not that we have fans going, mind--just that he likes little flashlights.

How do you bear the weight of it all? (chuckling to self)

Mara said...

Well, it looks funky! Now you just have to hope you can find the light in the dark!

Janet said...
