Black Out

photo via

Call me crazy (no, I know you already do. But this time you have my permission.) but I really think there should be a mandatory power outage at least once a month.

Benefits:
  • Provides an excuse to avoid vacuuming, doing dishes, and other such activities
  • Who doesn't love candles?
  • You can eat something that isn't cooked by radiation. (you know, like Peanut butter sandwiches?)
  • Good reminder of how a four-way stop works
  • Entertaining kids with real-life activities like the park, and books, and coloring in lieu of spending 4 hours trying to save up enough Studs to buy the Dumbledore character you just unlocked. (oh that was me. sorry.)
  • (unintentional bonus) Your husband might just use up all his cell phone battery reading twitter, and with no electricity to charge it will be forced to listen to you ramble about really exciting things like visiting teaching and how many people were at Zumba class instead of tuning you out.
  • The first movie your kids watch after 7 hours of being denied due to no power will be the most entertaining movie they've ever seen.

  1. Blackouts are always fun--especially at work--and provide relief from the daily routine.
