*There were floods, and the power was lost, and then the power came back on, and then there was an explosion (this is not figuarative, y’all), and then the power went out again. And then Bill & Charlie MacMillan saved the day. I’m not even joking, omg.
**And they sent us with popcorn, omg. ♥ ♥ ♥
***EVERYTHING EVERYTHING EVERYTHING EVERYTHING!
****In the dark and in a rush, I left the red carpet at Nick’s. I rolled up the orange rug from our office and with Rachel Kann’s help stuffed it into the car =D
