I went to the supermarket. I went with a shopping cart. The supermarket is up the street from me. I do an entire month’s shopping in one visit, generally. I stock up on sale items. I’m a thrifty buyer. The people standing in back of me at the checkout stand hate my guts. It takes me forever to check out all my stuff and pack it in my cart. I really don’t care. One time a customer actually complained to the manager about me. The manager told the guy, “He has a right to buy as much stuff as he wants.” There I got permission. Satisfied?
So now I’m ready for anything–any emergency. My cupboard is full. So like if there’s a nuclear war, and they drop a hydrogen bomb on Washington, DC — which is not entirely unlikely — I’ll be prepared to hold out for an entire month. It’ll be me and a month’s worth of pasta and spinach. Me needs me spinach!! So while all the rest of those sorry suckers will be wishing they stocked up for Armageddon, I’ll be prepared!!
