So here's my funny story. My mom picked me up from school early today because she had to bring my brother to his annual doctor's appointment and there would have been no one to pick me up. Because she was in a hurry, she dropped me off at the top of my road and I walked down to my house. Well, I had left all my stuff (coat, backpack, cell phone, key, etc.) in the car because I figured I'd just go in through the garage door. Well, the garage door didn't open because the power had gone out
. All the other doors were locked. It was also about 30 degrees (not that bad) and snowing. But, I was really worried about my fish freezing in there until my parents came home to unlock the door. But, there was nothing I could do about it (unless I broke a window to get in which would likely land me in a ton of trouble) so I just went into the barn (I'm now all wet because of the snow), fed the horses some treats, and sat down with a horse blanket around me. I was so worried about my fish that I didn't even think about myself as I sat there for a little over an hour waiting. Well, the power finally came on and I opened the garage door and went inside. I was expecting my fish to be really cold, but the largest temperature drop was 2 degrees
. That was in my cory tank and they actually liked it - they were "in the mood" when I walked in! Anyway, come to find out it was actually me that suffered most being wet outside in the cold
! Stupid me........
Oh well, live and learn right
. I just laughed at myself!
