Got a late-night mail last night from a Japanese woman who I’ve worked with, telling me that after 5 days, she and he family now have power restored at her house in what I call the People’s Democratic Republic of Montgomery County, Maryland.
I hadn’t heard from her for a while and correctly assumed she was without power, thus…
There is another Japanese woman who I have also worked with, who also lives in the tree-hugging People’s Democratic Republic of Montgomery County, Maryland, a Facebook “friend’, who posted Tuesday, she too was still without power and her patience was wearing thin: a contributing factor no doubt is that she is also several months pregnant.
So the thought occurred about offering for the duration, our home as refuge from the heat and inconvenience, and before offering, brought it up with wife unit. From her what-are-you-thinking-about!? reaction, one would have thought I suggested she start working as a pole dancer. Needless to say, the offer was not made.
Now I’ve been with her for over 25 years and still I see some ugly sides of her.
