This was was pure fun and borrowed a character and skill from a current book I am reading.
Ernie’s finger itched. It was the itch like while a Special Ops sniper. These days he shimmied poles for Delta Light and Power in Louisiana. Listening to Bob, his supervisor, complain about a dark lamp on the bridge parkway made Ernie itch. Bob always complained about his work.
“Don’t you know all Mayor Hargis will see is that dark lamp? Are ya tryin’ to get me fired?”
“So change it!” Ernie said.
As dusk fell newly fired Ernie watched the DL&P truck. His finger itched, but not for long. Bob climbed the ladder and twisted out the old bulb. When he did the entire grid went dark.
“Pow!” Ernie said.
