I am staying home today. Hurricane Sandy is getting closer. She was not invited to visit. But. I have prepared for her arrival. Yesterday we took all of the patio chairs off the deck and put them in the garage. The loose firewood in the fire pit is in a cardboard box in the basement. The cat has to stay inside the house, and the dog has to make up her mind quicker about the perfect place to go outside.
I am not worried about the storm as I have nine cans of King Oscar Tiny Tots, the finest Brisling sardines, in extra virgin olive oil, wild caught, wood smoked, and hand-picked. I also have one hundred and twenty bottles of natural spring water that is pure quality, made with fifty percent recyled plastic. I also still have power.
If the power goes out I will sit in the dark, eat sardines and drink water. I will not fear the terror of night.
