No Taming This Shrew


Dudes redux

Drove home from a truly wonderful evening of being fed delicious food in a manse and then seeing a short film at a friend's birthday party to find an enormous orange extension cord stretching from my back deck outlet across the driveway (as though they boobytrapped my way in) and into a neighbor's backyard. (About 35-50 yards.) The Dudes had invaded, and they needed our plug to power the rocking stereo placed atop their keg.

No heroics on my part (I don't pay power - they can take it). A. and I just got out of the car, backed slowly toward the house -- so as not to startle the native dude in its habitat -- and made a run for the back door. It's like the Serengeti around here -- college campus in Springtime.
