I was one of the lucky ones that lost power at our house this morning. I woke up around 3am, power was off and remained off until I left for work.
Early, around 5:45am, my wife and I were sitting in the den with KTTS on the radio. Candles and camping lights on to give us some light.
I mentioned to her that in the olden days, she would have been cooking over a wood burning stove making her man a hearty breakfast.
She jokingly replied that she couldn't make any hot pockets or microwave bacon because the microwave wasn't working.
I then said that she could go out and start the grill and make that hearty breakfast for me.
Yeah....that didn't go over real well.
At that point I got the eyes rolling and the "I don't believe I just heard that and you aren't really serious" look.
I decided to change the subject quickly.
I still haven't learned when to shut up and not say the wrong thing.
