Adventures of a future nurse-midwife


Lights Out

Posted by Lucille on June 2, 2011 at 1:20 PM

I really needed a shower after work today. The light was on in our room, so I assumed the water was on, undressed, and stepped into the shower. I tried to turn on the water, and nothing happened. Then the lights went out. It was pitch black. I waved my hand in front of my face-- nothing. My roommate had a headlamp somewhere, so I thought I could feel around and find it, but I nearly tripped over the edge of the shower and decided quickly that stumbling around in the dark was a very bad idea. So there I was, butt-naked in utter darkness, waiting. Luckily my roommate came in a few minutes later and rescued me. It was quite an adventure.
