I Could Not Care Less About The Light Switch - NaPoWriMo Day Fifteen Prompt intermediate, mediate, or whatever, I do not need its technical portrait imprinted on my retinas. As if you scored those wires on my eyelids instead of crumpled fists of paper our bedroom littered, yes, yes, our bedroom where I am so desperate to be sleeping, duvet to forehead, clawed over the ears, this unbidden seminar of light switch electronics threatening to blow a fuse in our marriage-- I DO NOT CARE! I do not need to know why the switches won't match when the lights are out. And we have tried every combination every puzzle box of on and off to make them fall in to a uniformed march. It was never a why question, but a general annoyance of a thing seeming out of place, like unmatched salt and pepper pots! Not purposeful, but one being oh-so-slightly shorter? Thinner? More rounded on the corners? Not a, "this is salt, and this is pepper difference" just difference you can't quite pin down or turn off, like the bloody light switches you won't stop explaining, or drawing at two a.m. when I mistakenly say 'I'm still not getting it?' Which I admit was really my fault so I'll take the next round of circuitry analysis in stride but gods above, will someone smite me, and while you're at it, hit the lights.
