The electricians came today and put new electric outlets in the wall.
We're going to have about twice as many outlets and about twice as many lights as we have now, not to mention a few new windows. Our kitchen will be dazzling with light. The electricians were from South Side Electric, an old local firm that, coincidentally, I worked at one summer when I was in college. The electricians seemed less amazed by this piece of small-worldness than I was. They did not, for example, offer me the Friends and Family Discount, even though I was practically one of them. One of the electricians was a woman, which would have been barely within the realm of possibility when I worked there.
Jim is very pleased because we now have an overhead light in the kitchen, which makes it less likely that we will trip over one of the pieces of plywood covering the now-nonexistent kitchen floor.
