We know the world’s going to hell in a handbag. But, I can’t emphasized how important this point is. Be it a flood, a tornado, and earthquake, a fire, or any other national disaster. Or, for that matter if your partner is chasing you around the living room with a machete. ALWAYS, under all circumstances, save what’s important first.
You can leave the kids, the dogs and grandma and grandpa and those cherished family photographs. That can all be replaced. BUT . .
RULE No. 1 – Get the BEER out first !
You’re going to need it when you’re all stress out about how to stay alive and that kinda shit.
Certainly, you must remember, during the great floods of 2011, when the river banks were bursting and you were isolated without power.
All the bottled water and batteries aren’t gonna do diddly squat about you coping a buzz during a disaster.
And not to mention the fact that, when there’s a tree down over the road, the liquor stores just that much further away. I’ve even heard of them closing down doors during a major catastrophe, if you can believe that.
You can light a candle and get munch on your army ration saltines. But that ain’t gonna get you to your dealer, is it?
And you say, “Well, we don’t live on a flood plain.” or “This isn’t the tornado belt.” Ha, you’re the ones that are going to get caught out, bet your bottom dollar. That’s why I suggest, as well, that you are pretty well blathered at all hours of the day and night in case calamity comes your way. Steels the nerves, mate.
So, repeat after me, folks. Get the BEER out first !
