The light went on today – literally.
There I was at the Home Depot trying to decide which new bedside lamps to buy – and it was a tough decision. But I made it and loaded the boxes into my cart. Then I asked a sales person where to find light bulbs and which CFL gave the warmest light because I have CFLs in the living room lamps I absolutely detest them! First, they give a cold, unpleasant, dim light. Then, if I ever break one, I have to wear a full hazmat outfit to get rid of them and I think I even have to call someone – I don’t know who – something oil spill or EPA related I suppose.
The sales person said, just buy the old incandescent bulbs!
Huh!? You can still buy them? I thought they were outlawed!
Nope, she said, only outlawed over 75 watts.
Really! Well roll me up in dog poop and call me a turd but I was so excited I bought eight bulbs and hurried to cash before they could change their minds and send me off to light bul jail.
Happy? You bet! It takes so little to make me happy. New lamps, nice lighting – it’s a good day.
