Antonio: Hey, Mr. Stipp, we got big problems at home. Our power went out. Someone's at the house fixing it right now.
Mr. Stipp: (with all the sarcasm I could muster) Oh no, what did you watch instead of TV?
Antonio: Oh, it was no problem. My dad has a DVD player in the van, so we just went out and watched that.
Disaster Averted. Whew.
