Heard on the news this morning that the people who are in charge of saying this sort of thing (FEMA? Duracell?) have told folks in the mid-Atlantic states to stock up on batteries, non-perishable foods, candles and portable radios, cause the Hurricane is headed their way. I was thinking I’d still be able to use my “Y2K / 9-11” supply of bottled water and Beefaroni. Did folks throw out their portable radios and duct tape? I kept mine. I even have a solar one, so I don’t need batteries. But I’ve had it for several years now. I don’t need to run out and buy one.
Plus, I’m sure that by the time we get anything from this storm up here, it will just be a tropical depression (“Aloha! Have some Wellbutrin!”) and I’ll be pissed because I’ll have spend a fortune on candles and have no reason to light them. So maybe I’ll just take my chances and not stock up on batteries and candles. I figure if the electricity goes out, I’ll just go to bed earlier than normal.
See, I have an emergency plan!
1. Eat Beefaroni.
2. Go to bed early.
