Dzzz, Dzzzzz, Dzzzzz, Dzzz...

I love it when, late on a warm humid evening, or early on a cool foggy morning, the electric wires out front hiss and crackle in the wet air, the current abandoning its engineered path to spark and pop pointlessly but pleasingly. I don’t know why I love it. It’s presumably "a bad thing" from a well-maintained-city-infrastructure point of view. But love it I do. What pointless-but-pleasing thing do you love?

    A warm humid evening,
    or early on a cool foggy morning
    the electric wires
    out front
    hiss and crackle in the wet air,
    the current abandoning
    its engineered path
    to spark and pop pointlessly but pleasing.
    I don't know why
    I love it.

    [This is pure poetry .]

    I love to see my cat licking herself. I thing it is not a pointless activity. However, she does it with such industry that it fascinates me.

    And I echo Cameron's comment about the uptick in your activity, Slimbo!
