Happily thinking about how I would surprise my family with my baking skills, I carefully walked into the sitting room. Suddenly, everything went dark and I tripped and ended up face down in my masterpiece: the chocolate cake I had spent all evening preparing! Oh, how I cursed the power outage! Later, I learned that it had been caused by a tree, whose branches grew right through the electricity wires of my house.
