I Am Cooking, Hear Me Roar

My friend Soul Sister brought her boyfriend, her daughter, and her daughter's friend to help my sister and I move stuff from the house to outside storage.

From their arrival, we were hit with delays: dead batteries on power tools, frozen bolts and screws, thunder, lightning, and rain.

After three hours, I started to cook dinner because everyone was getting hungry. I had just put the raw hamburger patties and hot dogs on the indoor grill when we heard a loud clap of thunder and the lights flickered as if the power was about to go out.

Wanting to make my wishes known to the powers that controlled the electricity to my house that I was NOT going to deal with another delay, I defiantly held my spatula and blurted out, "Don't even think about it!!!"

My guests laughed at me, and even I knew what I said was ridiculous. However, it must have worked. The lights flickered no more, the electricity didn't go out, and we were able to munch on our grilled burgers and dogs with french fries, and pork and beans, despite the stormy weather outside.

They're coming back tomorrow to try to move this stuff again. God bless them. Let's hope the weather isn't hot and there's no rain.
