Some Questions About The Horrendous NYC Blackout

Categories: Advice


*Will we really have to put New York on stilts some day to avoid the storm surge?

Can't we all just wear higher heels?

*Didn't I tell you how great Jack's 99-cent stores are?

While people were frantically running around scarfing up flashlight batteries for 30 scammy dollars, the Jack's on 40th Street was selling them at the usual two-for-a-dollar price!

*Don't you have new respect for blind people after stumbling around in the near-dark?

I mean, don't you suddenly worship Helen Keller?

And can't you sort of see how if that's your reality, you slowly start to adjust to it in all its horrid limitations?

*Wasn't all that stair climbing a sort of unwanted yet invigorating cardio exercise every day?

Come on. Let's make lemonade, huff, puff.

*Why is my neighborhood always one of the last ones to get power back?

Shouldn't they tell you that when they lease you the apartment?
