Every now and then I am plunged into darkness.
Of course, that is a metaphorical darkness, as it is full daylight and there are no lights on; but if there were lights on, and it was night time, I would be in darkness. What actually happens is that everything suddenly powers down and if it weren’t for the battery in this machine, I would be fucked. All my hard work would be lost, and posterity would be the great loser.
What happens is that a fuse blows.
It used to be a 16 amp fuse but I got tired of replacing them so I moved up to a 20 amp. That blew regularly so now I’m on the 25 amp version. Next stop is a cut-down six inch nail.
I don’t know why it happens. I don’t have much running off that circuit, apart from a deep freeze, my wireless network, my laptop, the television, the audio system I hooked up to the television, my router, my XBox [hah! Bet you didn’t know I had one of them?], my printer, a couple of hard drives and a few other things besides.
And there is the shed.
I have noticed that there is a strange coincidence. Whenever a fuse blows, it seems to coincide with herself having a lie-in. I let her have one of them every now and then, as I find that sleep is great for a hangover. So maybe the blown fuse is something to do with herself being in bed?
What the fuck can she be at that she is blowing fuses?
Quite honestly, there are some things that are best left to the imagination.
And there are some things that are best not imagined at all.
