When there is a blackout, birthday candles are pretty useless;
because … what are the chances of it happening on your birthday, or … actually having any birthday cake close at hand!
note: power outages always happen at the wrong time … it’s always the wrong time after a power outage too.
double note: I think I lose a lot of my daylight savings at night!
triple note: power poles during a blackout are just boring totem poles.
