Coping with a power outage, part two.

Next, don't be a serious coffee drinker. It's important to have a light blue couch with a light blue slipcover that slips all the time. A hand-knit blanket that reminds you of Charlie Brown's zig-zag tee shirt is also a must, as is having easy access to at least two cats. You can substitute for one medium sized dog (or larger). Small dogs are pretty much useless in the event of a power outage. It's just a rule. I don't make the rules.

If your boyfriend managed to make some coffee you can steal sips. Tea is just as good isn't it? No, it isn't, but it's okay that you think so, even preferable at times.

It's also good if there's a light green water glass on the coffee table and a hand- sewn quilt that you made yourself hanging on the wall above the couch. A box of chocolate truffles from Trader Joes and askew pillows are optional.
