First, watch a creepy movie home alone on a dark night.
Second, just as the movie is getting to the creepy climax, have the power in your home go out.
Third, make the power be out not just in your home, but as far as the eye can see.
Fourth, find no comfort in your dog because what does she care about your silly human eyes. She can see in the dark, fool!
Fifth, sit on the sofa and wonder what the hell you are going to do if the power doesn't come back on soon.
Lastly, finish watching the movie when the power comes back on 30 minutes later.
