If you were minding your own business and strolling down the street (or across the Georgia countryside) and you casually noticed that the zombie apocalypse had taken place, would you be able to take on the undead??? I understand that as a mom it can be hard to tell, with the moans, groans and grunts coming from our kids, but you will eventually see the difference in how your kids are NOW trying to suck the life out of you.
I’m not a “prepper” or a believer in the zombie apocalypse, just a HUGE fan of The Walking Dead and a gal that carries just about EVERYTHING imaginable in her purse (not to mention, that I’m into so very many things). I’m prepared for most disasters and have shown this during some odd adventures in my life (roofs blowing off or severe storms and packing customers in a cooler to protect them from a possible tornado). I don’t know how I do it, but have a knack for being in the middle of natural disasters (and the cause of a few), so being “prepared” has become a something I find wise to do.
From flash lights to a cool purple kubotan, band aids to candy and enough pens to write my way around the moon and back. There are other goodies in there, but those are for another day. I’ve tried to downsize to a little purse, but I need my “tools” just in case! So a tiny bag is just not in the cards. Am I alone in this desire to always be prepared??? Hope not!
What do you carry? A little? A lot? More than any sane individual should???? Even being “prepared” you need to also realize that your shoulder can only take so much weight. Don’t hurt yourself. Ideally, your purse should weigh no more than 10% or your body weight or 10lbs (whichever is less) and even as much as I carry, I don’t break this rule… Neither should you.
So the next time you look in your bag, ask yourself, “Am I ready for the zombie apocalypse?” Or just ask yourself if you’re prepared to open a sealed package and see if you are… You NEVER know what emergency might happen. Just don’t hurt yourself. 🙂
