Does this make any sense?

Yesterday was a little breezy. Ok, that's putting it mildly. It was downright blustery! Maybe blustery doesn't even really describe it accurately. More like my house was being ripped apart by demon wind hands! Yeah, that sums it up.

And as I've mentioned before, we've had a part of a tree fall on and damage our house twice. Two times too many. So I worried about that most of the day. Luckily, no tree problems this time around. But the power went out about 11:00 p.m. And here's the part that makes no sense to me. Let me set the stage.

I like to stay up later than anyone else in the house. Hubby and son usually hit the sack about 10. Maybe 11. I, on the other hand, stay up until 12-1:00. Well, yesterday, when the lights went out at 11:00, I was mid-blogging and hubby was up, on his phone. Not talking. More likely checking sports scores. Anyhow, when the power dies, a small emergency flash light plugged into the family room, pops on. It's not a strong light but enough so you can see your hand in front of your face. Hubby, from another room, announced that he was going to bed. Ok, makes sense - after all, it was past his normal bedtime. And there was no lights. So he wandered off to the bedroom.

About 2 minutes later, he comes to the family room, with a flashlight beaming, to find another flashlight we store in the laundry room.

Me: Where are you going with that light?
Him: I'm taking it to the bedroom.
Me: Umm, why? Aren't you going to bed? In the dark?
Him: Well yes, but we need a light in the bathroom, in case we have to pee during the night.
Me: And you can't do that with the 1st flashlight you already have in your hand?
Him: Well, I need that one in the bedroom so I can get undressed and ready for bed.

Uh huh. Are you seeing my confusion yet? He can't be in the bedroom and the bathroom at the same time and I would imagine he only needs a light where he currently is so why is one light not enough? Meanwhile, I'm still up and not planning on going to bed yet and I have one puny light to see by. How does this make any sense?

I let him go on his way and waited until he was asleep (all of 5 minutes later), then went and grabbed the 2nd light so I had some real light to see by. And I didn't even worry about him losing his way to the bathroom once. That's the kind of caring wife I am.
