I got a phone call today at work. I was trying to take a lady's order, but the phone kept ringing. She told me to answer it. This is the conversation:
me: Flower shop, this is LaRue.
him: Hi honey! Why didn't you answer my phone call when I called you on your cell?
me: Because I'm working...
Mike: Oh okay. Well, I need pre-authorization.
me: For why?
Mike: Umm, you know how I was going to buy a car refrigerator for when I drive out of state for work so I can keep milk and fruit and stuff?
Mike: Can I buy it now instead?
Mike: Because we don't like having hot water when we get back to camp. We'd rather have cold water.
Mike: Thanks! I love you!
I was baffled. As I finished helping the lady, I thought about how in the world he was going to plug in the refrigerator while they were CAMPING. So, I called him:
me: Hi! Why do you need a fridge?
Mike: I told you already. To keep our drinks cold.
me: Yes, I understand. But how are you plugging it in?
Mike: We have power!
me: You're camping
Mike: I know!
me: How do you have power if you're camping?
Mike: I don't know, we just do. Cool huh?
me: Yeah, cool. So much for high adventure.
Mike: More like low adventure. K, gotta go! Love you!
me: Love you too!
Who has electricity at a Boy Scout High Adventure campsite?? I mean, I know that the buildings need to, but why do the camp sites need electricity? And do the scouts have to pay for what they use? How weird is that? I'm still totally baffled. At least now they have a refrigerator to keep their drinks cold!
