Comcast quit working for over six hours today, for the whole Village. Mom was trying to work from home, and ended up having to use leave since she couldn't work, and there wasn't enough time to actually make the trip into the city to go to the workplace there since she had her acupuncturist appointment on her lunch break in the early afternoon. Plus she missed a dead lion she was supposed to handle and she has a new secretary, a young man just out of the Army, and she wasn't online to help HIM get help with some things.
Let's just say she's a little bit CRANKY tonight. She's banging around the kitchen with a wooden spoon muttering HBO phrases that involve "Comcast." Plus she said this Friday on Casual Day she's going to go in to work wearing a bathrobe and a tiara with a box of wine under her arm.
I think I will stay out of her way for a bit. Dad has been warned and will arrive home bearing alcohol and a box of Dots. Thank goodness there's fried chicken left from last night or dinner might have been just something on the rocks.
