Ride the Lightning

Lightning

So there we were — Jane, Spot and myself — sitting in the living room watching a repeat of Doctor Who on the electric television while eating dinner of a nice Madras curry (Spot wasn’t eating his bowl of curry for some reason) when all of a sudden there was an ALMIGHTY crash and everything™ suddenly went completely dark, both inside the house and out.

Almost as soon as we were plunged into the darkness we realised that everything was bathed in a glorious and brilliant white light. Then it was dark again, for a moment before the house and street lights came back on.

Quite spectacular this world of ours at times. My compliments to the maker.
