As I sat last night in my air-conditioned home, sitting by the homely glow of my ugly floor lamp, knitting on the weeny little buttonband for the Beth sweater, I imagined the trauma you must be experiencing without electricity. Never mind that you have a house full of small children, half of whom speak French. Never mind that your freezerful of Costco chicken nuggets is in peril. Never mind that you cannot give those children the tender solace of a Spongebob Squarepants video. Never mind all of that–what about eBay? How will you survive without checking your auctions?
Pained to consider the difficulty you must be facing.
