Load Shedding

Load shedding (noun): The supposedly scheduled (but often unscheduled) power outages for upwards of 10 hours a days that are technically supposed to help alleviate the electricity shortage in Pakistan but since the shortage never ends, it mostly just annoys the citizens and makes getting ready in the morning a Russian roulette of will-the-water-run-out-before-or-after-I’m-done-showering. Oh didn’t I mention that no electricity means no water unless you wake up at 4am to turn on the motor that pumps water into your water tank? Silly me. 

On the bright side, line drying laundry because there’s no electricity for the washer/dryer is probably very good for the environment, right?


This is day 4 of the Five Photo Five Story Challenge and today I’m nominating the always entertaining The Morning Grouch πŸ™‚ The rules are simple:

1. Post a photo each day for five consecutive days.

2. Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it is entirely up to you.

3. At the end of each day, nominate one other blogger to take part.
