Here in New York City, we’re awaiting the arrival of Hurricane Irene.
The calm before the storm and all that.
(Wow — I’ve been celebrating daily for years.)
Some folks on Facebook think people who remain in their homes in the path of Irene are taking the holiday a bit too seriously.
Now, if I lived in an evacuation zone, I would be gone in an instant. But I don’t. So I’m staying…because it’s home. I’ve been out-of-town for the past week, and home is comfortable and reassuring and the only place I want to be.
I’ve got food and water and batteries and my dog. I’ve got books and magazines if — say it isn’t so — the electricity goes out and I can’t watch HBO OnDemand.
Heck, I’m acting too sane for Just Because Day.
Gotta work on that.
