The thunder was so loud it woke up Henry and me. We fell back to sleep then the wind woke us. I hate to use the old chestnut, but that wind really did sound like a freight train roaring. That was even scarier than the blasts of thunder. The rain smashed against the windows and added to the roar.
Everything is wet, but the rain has stopped. It is a damp, dark day. It is warm at 55˚. I have to go out and do a couple of errands. I need to go to the library, the post office and the grocery store for a few items.
When I was a kid, my mother grocery shopped on Fridays. She had no license so my father had to drive her. He never went inside the store but waited for her outside in the car. We loved Friday nights and Saturdays. The larder was filled, and there were cookies like Oreos and chocolate chip, and there were wonderful hands off foods like Hostess cupcakes meant for lunches the following week. Hot dogs, brown bread and baked beans were in the bags, our usual Saturday fare. There was always a roast.
Today’s end of the world Film is about a meteor shower concentrated on a small Colorado mountain Town. The first meteors knock out the electricity, the main road off the mountain and downtown stores. The giant meteor will destroy the town and all its people unless it breaks apart in the atmosphere which it does. The town is saved. The mayor’s house is number 11567. I wondered why.
Okay, I have chosen my next film to watch, Happy Beaster Day. The description of the film says it is about a giant, bloodthirsty Rabbit killing the locals in a town. When the mayor refuses to act, survival lies in the hands of two unlikely heroes. Okay, first scene is of a woman who sees the giant rabbit. She runs to the road, turns and screams at the rabbit while waving her arms in the air. A car hits her. The rabbit attacks. The woman’s eye flies through the air and lands in the pitcher of ice tea from which her husband drinks. The eye hangs from his mouth. This movie may even be too much for me!
