My very first adventure-lesson thing on this blog just happened to be a Power-cut.
Now if you’ve never heard of them, you are blessed indeed but to those of us living in tropical islands in the Indian Ocean (Look up Sri Lanka why don’t you?), they are kind of normal.
So what did I end up doing?
That’s right. I read a book.
Now it was a new book. But I won’t tell what it was because I have to save that for a day that is truly uneventful. Today wasn’t uneventful. I read a book. I discovered how needy my cat is. I discovered how long a day actually is without THE INTERNET to help drug you.
So lessons learned:
1. One can survive without THE INTERNET despite everything on TV and Youtube and WordPress and Facebook (Why do I even mention that publicity-seeking drama queen riddled site?) and Twitter.
2. Cats are needy. Very Very needy. Like selfishly needy. They won’t give a shit how incredibly comfortable you already are on your bed on this very rainy day with an ideal book. They will insist on climbing up (and thus disregard your very important principles) and pawing you incessantly until you relent and pet it.
3. Power-cuts are just the worst. Despite all a really good book has to offer. I mean power-cuts really don’t help in any way with you completing daily challenges on WordPress and such. Newsflash.
I’ve completed my first day of my challenge and have learned three very important things today.
