I take full responsibility for my actions. I never should have mentioned it. Yes, I’ve jinxed it, and there’s nothing more I can do but fall on my sword.
I caused a major power failure that lasted for hours. How did I do this? Well, I mentioned that there were frequent power fluctuations at Camp Victory, however I recently said to a coworker that the power had been pretty stable lately. In fact, in the last month, I only remember one momentary power failure. That’s compared to the four per day we were getting before that. We were doing so well.
But, NOOOOOOO. I had to be all cocky talking about how the power was working better than ever.
So, when I get back to my room tonight, my power was out. It was out throughout the entire living area here. The air conditioning was off, and it was a really hot day. It was pitch black in my room. All I had was a small LED flashlight, which barely lights up the gun laying on my bed. I deserved this darkness, I suppose.
Still, I made the best of it and watched Mythbusters DVDs on my Macbook until the power came back on.
Now that the power is back, I bow to the electricity gods and show them all their due respect. How about I don’t taunt you anymore?
