Many Are Cold, but Few Are Frozen

Birthday in the Dark

During a little birthday gathering for my daughter, the power went off.  Our neighbors were over with their girls at the time. We were about to eat cake.

How lucky. If you're going to lose power, it's a good thing if it happens when you're about to light a birthday cake: you already have candles and matches on hand.

Kind of like getting shot in a hospital.
