Holy cow! My house looks like it was attacked by a marauding band of extension cords! Hubby was putting more lights up outside (he wants to be Clark Griswald when he grows up) and had to go get more extension cords. I didn't see it until this morning when I had to go out to unplug all the lights (the neighbors were complaining of the glare). I about screamed and ran back in! I was surrounded! They seemed to be writhing all over the lawn and driveway, breeding like rabbits.
I almost wet my pants I put on a brave face and quickly ran to unplug them before they could figure out what I was doing and come up with an attack. It was close. I sprinted across the driveway, hurdled over cords before they could reach up and trip me, and as I yanked the plugs I barely escaped a backlash of electric shock they flung at me. But I prevailed! Now they hang lifeless, useless, unable to get back their power without help. Of course now they know me and will be ready for next time. From now on hubby can face their wrath.
