Oh my gosh. I have to tell you about the crazy electrical storm we had on thursday; I was working a shift from 9.45 til 7.30. Around 2.30pm, we were called a ‘101’ which means for all outdoor vendors to get to our rain locations. As I was at a nut wagon that day there was no need for me, and the popcorn wagon next door, to move as those wagons have shelter…fit for light rain. The thunder started and we heard the coordinator call for all nut wagons to get to a rain location. Naturally, we were crapping it. It has to be bad for them to tell us to move. So there we were, stood like drowned rats inside the tea cups, so we could still see our cart, when the thunder drifted right above us. Seriously it sounded like bombs were being dropped. To add to the sound effects, about 1 million crying children were running around thinking they were going to die. Bless. But on an on the thunder goes, and in comes the wind blowing branches around. Up goes the umbrellas sheltering my nut wagon and down jolts the lightening. Literally 3 meters away from where I was standing. No joke. Deadly serious. I actually feared for my life for a bit. It was an impressive sight though. Its not everyday you see a huge fork of light connecting the sky to the earth. And it didn’t stop raining for the rest of the day.
That night, after I dried, April, Helen and myself ventured into west side AMC to watch Toy Story 3. ITS AMAZING! Go see it. End of. There is like everything in the movie…We even cried a flood at the end. So take your tissues!!
Just a cheerful HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!! Dad, I hope you have a good one, and a good birthday weekend :)
Thanks for reading, guys!!!
