Being an overly anxious person, I worry about the big earthquake. I worry about not being immediately killed by a mountain falling on me or being slurped up by the earth.
I worry about living without electricity.
Once in awhile, this anxiety leads me to buy some useful product just in case. Clothes dryer doesn't work anymore? Ha! I have a clothesline and clothes pins.
Dishwasher doesn't work? Ha. I have dish soap!
No laptop? Ha. I have books.
Here's a list of things that might be really useful after the big quake:
1. A burro
2. A milk cow
4. A Spring bar tent.
5. A good sleeping bag(s)
6. A compass
7. An autoharp or an accordian
8. A 500 lb. stash of chocolate chips
9. An axe
10. A wheelbarrow
11. A shovel. Latrine anyone?
12. And, of course, lip gloss.
