On Shabbat if all of your home fuses were to "pop" and you could choose one fuse to stay on, which would you choose?
That's a no-brainer for sure, right. You'd say:
"Keep the refrigerator on, and if the electric platter and urn are on the same one, even better."
Nu, right? Wouldn't you say that, espcially if we're talking about Friday night, just after finishing the Shabbat evening meal? I left out something. We had a guest, a sleep-over guest.
Well, did you guess it? That's exactly what happened. We were all finished eating and had left the table when--
No light except for the one over the dairy sink and the emergency one in the far corridor. I could see that electricity was going into the TV, the urn was on, the fridge was making noise and the platta was hot.
So, we took the hint and went to bed early. I kept thanking G-d for the miracle, and as soon as Shabbat was out I checked the fuse box, flipped the switches and turned on the computer.
