Blackout


Without the constant hum of computers, fish tank air filters, and fluorescent overhead lighting the library is surprisingly silent. So silent you could hear the rustle of someone turning a book page. I would know because we did not have power today for over three hours. So when the band decided to use the room next door to the library (since that room actually had windows and a minute amount of light to see by), I was treated to some insanely loud guitar renditions of Yankee Doodle Dandy all day long. At least it wasn't kazoo day.

I also got to serve on graffiti duty, patrolling the halls to preserve our pristine student bathrooms from idle pencils and impromptu groping sessions.

Today made me glad I was not a librarian before electricity, I would have lost my sanity before I made it through even one week of monastic silence.

I loved blackouts in school. It broke up the day.

They don't have electricity in Maine, so everyday was a blackout when I was a kid.

There wasn't even a Maine when I was a kid. It was still called East Michigan then.
