How I Prepare for Catastrophes

Occasionally I watch Revolution.  The show scares me to death.  But I like Billy Burke.

All my life I’ve been told to keep between 3 months to a year’s worth of food storage.  I’m supposed to have a 72 kit that’s mobile.  (I have this last one and I’m working on the 3 month one.  Of course I’m not sure I know where the 72 hour kit is, but I’m unsure how important that is.)  (Actually, this is a lie.  I have a couple days worth of Captain Crunch in my basement.  I’m going to work on this very, very soon.)

But now that I’ve watched Revolution, I don’t think this is enough by far.  I need sword lessons, hand combat skills, computer science skills, and to be able to perform surgery with a sharp knife and whiskey.  (How the whiskey should be used is a bit ify.)

I’m just not ready.  Maybe that’s why I don’t have food storage.  Then no one will attack my house because there’s nothing of value in it.  I think this is a sound approach to the world falling apart.

I wonder if “amazing wit” would come in handy.

I'm saving perfume samples.  That should count for something.  Especially if I can memorize that model's intense glare.

    hahaha! I totally watch that show too and it makes me want to hoard things like tampons and chocolate.
    Funny post! I totally think the perfume samples are a good idea. You could trade them to smelly people for food.

      I only have a week’s worth of chocolate at a time. This is the perfect time of year to change that.

    Ha! They just advertised a preparedness expo at UVU and all the classes sounded like something out of a post-apocalyptic nightmare, plus a lot of groupies pushing essential oils and how to memorize the Constitution. Sometimes Utah is a scary place.

  3. Love it! I have a bunch of home canned salsa, green beans, and tuna. But it’s all packed in glass, so I’m thinking that could get a little heavy.
