awesome. at 9 this morning i went out to the barn to finish setting up the song “be lifted or hope rising” and i was there for maybe 10min when things went dark. the electricity went out. nothing. blackness. so i run/stumble down the stairs and there’s this guy walking away from our breaker box at a brisk pace. he looked sneaky in his white hard hat and official blue shirt with the electric company logo embrodery. i shouted, “hey! hey! what the crap!?!!??” he said, “dude i just do what they tell me.” i said, “what did they tell you?” he said, “to cut off your power for non-payment.” i punched him. in the throat. no, i didn’t. i smiled and said, “you have got to be kidding.” he said, “nope.” i said, “that’s impossible.” he said, “that’s what they all say.” then i punched him. in the throat. no, i didn’t. i smiled and said, “this is not good. this is sooo not good. what can be done?” he said, “you’ll have to call and talk to your power supplier.” i said, “aren’t you my power supplier? you took it from me. cann’t you give it back?” he said, “dude, i’ve got other orders pending that i’ve got to get to. i’ve got to go.” i said, “no. you must give back what you have taken.” he said, “dude, pay your bill.” i said, “i assure you that i have paid my bill.” he said, “that’s what they all say.” i punched him again. this time on his chin. no, i didn’t. i smiled and said, “what can be done?” he said, “call your power supplier and they’ll send me a reconnect order. i’ll watch for it to come in on my computer and come back as soon as i see it show up.” i said, “that’s what they all say.” 30 min later he was back. i asked him, “why do you wear the white hard hat? it looks a little silly wandering around in the neighborhood with the green grass and sunny skies and you with such protective covering. i’m just saying.” he looked at me like he’d been thinking the same thing for so long and slowly removed it and as it hung in his right hand by his right side i punched him. on the top of his head. i had to jump up in the air but i came down with great force. no, i didn’t. i smiled and said, “i really like your hat. and thanks for coming back so soon. we really needed back this thing that you had taken from us.”
