I slept well for a change. Nothing much happening and I finally made it through the day without any interruptions and put my dinner in the oven without burning myself.
This has worked out well. The lasagna is great and I can just relax and watch the tame murder mystery and not have to see the commission of the actual crime… just a lot of amiable people and genteel criminals and such… . And not again?
“We interrupt all programming for a special report. The emergency broadcast system has been activated. This is not a test. This is not a test. Standby for important information…”
Now what? A hurricane, tsunami? Nuclear war? A shortage of toilet paper? Sometimes, it’s been nothing: a minor storm warning that fizzled. There have been a lot of false alarms since they started using the system for weather instead of just Nuclear War and things like that. It used to be that the Emergency Broadcast System was never triggered for real. It always said, “This is a test. This is only a test. Had there been an actual emergency, the broadcasters in your area would have issued instructions and blah, blah, I think…” Maybe this time they are not ‘crying wolf’.
