Recently, there was a transformer fire near me. This story was of mild interest to me, and of little interest to anyone not in the area. However, the end of the article contained some quotes from folks on the scene, and they’re really something.
“There’s been an electrical fire, and it will be at least a couple hours before we’re open,” said a Whole Foods employee.
“I have a cake to pick up,” said one man standing outside Whole Foods. “No cake?”
“No cake, I’m so sorry,” said the employee.
“Don’t worry, I understand,” said the man. “A fire’s a fire.”
I was reading about a fire, but suddenly, I’m reading a children’s book!
