Each individual yap is making it very difficult to sleep. Why can’t the neighbor’s dog bark like a normal dog?
I open my eyes considering the murder of a small dog, when I notice it is awfully light outside.
That can’t be right. My alarm hasn’t gone off yet and I usually get up at 5:00 AM. It’s usually still a little dark.
I roll over and look at my alarm clock.
It isn’t on.
I am now awake. I realize the fan is off and I can’t hear the fan in the baby’s room because the monitor is off too.
No wonder the dog woke me up, it is silent in here.
But… Wait. What time is it? I am going to be late for work.
I run out to the living room and look at David’s phone.
I was supposed to be at work at 6:00. I frantically call my supervisor who can’t find me on the roster for the day. Then he finally does and I tell him I am on my way.
I am quickly getting dressed and still trying to figure out why we have no power.
I had paid the bill.
The neighbor’s dog is still barking.
And the power comes back on.
I run outside to get in the car for work and there are Edison crews parked between my house and the neighbor’s house.
And that is why I was late to work.
