We all come at life's experiences from our own perspective, so I thought I would sit down with Conor and see if I could figure out what his perspective might be on The Big Power Outage.
Would he talk about his angst? He certainly expressed it at every opportunity during the experience. Would I have a glimmer of how he remembered it? How he processed it?
I wasn't too successful. His answers are short. Brief without being concise. Not truly illuminating, sad to say. (Sad for me, I mean.)
He answered my questions, factually anyway. Nothing more. Just the facts, ma'am.
A storm. The lights out. A visit to my parents. A motorcycle ride or two. (My dad has a Harley.) His cousin makes a brief mention.
I would have made it longer, but he insisted on 2 minutes, 45 seconds. Hey, the Director can't argue with the talent. We survived the severe storm (technically called a derecho), but we still are coping with the after-effects.
Technically, I think it's pronounced da-RAY-cho.
