You know you dwell in the virtual more than the real when today happens. There was a time when a power outage meant all life stood to a standstill. Or at least we thought so. But times have changed and we are now in the 21st century and so network outage is the new power outage. We had a complete network blackout at work today. No access to any servers, email, the net. Nothing. Zilch. Nada. So, with literally *nothing* to do for almost an hour and a half, I decided to make a trip to the restrooms. As I stepped into the stall and I will spare you kind readers the details of the trip, a thought crept into the aging mind. With the complete network outage, how will the flush work?

LOL! And thanks for sparing us with the details :)
One time there was a power outage, feeling bored I called couple of friends over for idli and sambhar. Only few minutes before they arrived did I realise, we had an electric stove :)

LOL. Yep network outage is indeed the new power outage.
BTW wanted to comment on your previous post. Like others I have to say that I'm glad you share such a nice relationship with your MIL. I'm like you when it comes to faith. I wish I was either an atheist like my husband or a had enormous faith like my dad. But I'm not sure either way. I can't call myself agnostic either because I do believe in some higher power..i think.
