What could possibly go wrong? Everything was in order: the drinks were chilled, the food kept warm, the mascots arrived and the birthday cake was set on the table, its two little candles waiting to be lit and blown. A few early guests were there with their moms and dads. It was 6:45 pm and 25 minutes more to go for the birthday party to begin.
Then it happened! Brownout. Blackout. Power Outage. Whichever it's called, it was still pitch dark.
Some kids panicked,calling “ Mom, where are you! Dad?” And vice versa.
The host rushed to the kitchen counter where they kept the emergency light, bumped unto something and yelled “OUCH!”. Somebody chuckled to which he countered with “What, you happy now?
Then everybody laughed!
I have a confession to make: the story three paragraphs above didn't actually happen, well, at least not to me (except the brownout: it's really happening right now). It's just a scenario I made up while waiting for the power to come back. But the thing is, It can't be far from the truth if in case it did happen. Filipinos have the knack of turning a minor mishap into something funny.
In case you're wondering how was I able to post this: Power generator. It's irritating to listen to but at least I have internet :-)
Have a nice day everyone!
