Who turned the lights out?


(sure is dark in here!)


I was downstairs in the kitchen the other night, and my husband was upstairs watching tv. I finished puttering around and turned off the kitchen light - at the same moment that hubby turned out the upstairs light. The whole house went dark. Which is what usually happens when you turn the lights off.

Me: Oh no! The power's out.

Hubby: Great. Can you find the flashlight?

Me: No. I can't see a thing.

Hubby: I think it's in the pantry. What was that noise?

Me: Ow! Just my toe breaking.

Hubby: Forget it. Don't start rummaging in the pantry. I'll try to find my way down the stairs.

Me: Hey. How come the clock is still working on the microwave?

Hubby: What?

Me (flipping the light switch, which is what I should have done 5 minutes earlier): I guess the power came back on!

(...yes, the lights are on, but I'm often in the dark anyway.)
