Here is a verbatim transcription of a series of text messages sent between The Hair and myself this afternoon.
To set the scene, I was enroute to Yallingup, see post below. The Hair was in his default position, in front of the computer, reading Manga comics instead of doing his homework.
The Hair: Dad, powers out. I want it back. What do I do?
Me: Its off for 3 hours for maintenance better do your homework and study instead! (See picture)
The Hair: Sunovahorse (maintenance people). I need wikipedia, the internet, the computer to do my MPA
Me: Back on at 4
The Hair: Im going to die
The Hair: Doubtful. Does the afterlife have DSL?
Me: Depends where you go!
The Hair: So they call it hell because its only got dial-up?
A few minutes pass. Picture The Hair trying to come up with a new plan.
The Hair: Can I please use your laptop?
Me: Yeah, but the modem won't work without power
The Hair: This is exactly why we need a generator.
