Today the electricity was off for almost 7 hours..........I try to treat these escapades as just that, "escapades". I was on the computer this morning checking emails when everything just went off. Usually it comes back on in a few minutes - but, not today. So I busied myself with other things - catching up on some reading, a long leisurely shower to cool off since there were no ceiling fans, and a few other things. Then about 3 hours into this "escapade" I thought, "Hmmm, wonder if it's just my house that is out, I better try to call and see" So I did call and after about 10 rings a man answered and in Spanish I told him my situation and of course he replied in machine gun speed and there I stood........I apologized for my "muy mal Espanol" to which they always say politely "no no Senora es ok" but I still didn't know anything so I move on in the day with faith that it will be fixed. I left for a couple of hours and came home fully expecting electricity..........nope, not yet and then I decided it might be a lengthy siege so I gathered candles for the evening. I was amazed at my calmness and patience - wish I had always been this way in life! So I settle down to read a couple of business magazines, resigned to the fact that I will miss my favorite TV program at 6PM and voila, ELECTRICITY!
All in a day in Mexico!
