Drabble Challenge #12

Prompt: power

part 2 of the Adventures in Homebuying series: Adventures in Homebuying

If we had it I could have a nice cold Pepsi, or a popsicle,
Or maybe sit under the ceiling fan on the front porch

We would be able to do a lot of things—
Clean the floors,
Start moving things in,
Finally see what’s in the dark attic

But as it is,
Almost all we can do is sit here in the heat,
Walk around looking at everything,
Saying ‘It’s ours now!’

We’re just kind of stuck

Until the electrician finishes his work,
Until the inspector gives us a certificate,
Until Georgia Power comes out,
Until we have power
