He rolls the very young woman’s body over two others that are closest to our little red wagon. The noise is crunchy like Fritos and thumpy like when you are trying to find just the right watermelon. She doesn’t seem to be IN rigor mortis or is it just rigor mortis?
Etiquette for an Apocalypse
Survival Guide Tip of the week:
More items for your W.T.S.H.T.F (when the $#!% hits the fan) shopping list…
Because Etiquette for an Apocalypse is now published (you can buy it through Amazon.com or your local bookstore), I’m doing readings at bookstores. I wear a dress made of a construction weight plastic bag. Not as flattering as I had hoped, but it makes a point. If you haven’t already done it, buy a large box of plastic bags and a dozen rolls of duct tape. Do not make dresses. Save them to cover blown out windows, put on your soaking mattress and/or use for cleaning up the residue of disasters.
This is a follow up to my previous blog post detailing three items you absolutely need to go out and buy BEFORE an emergency…this week I’m suggesting you pick up two more things at the hardware store. Heavy-duty gloves that you keep in your emergency supplies. Do not use them for everyday stuff, because when disaster strikes you need to know where they are. Why gloves you ask? O.K. These will be invaluable for cleaning up vomit (possibly yours) that is in a pile of metal and glass shard. Or, picking through the ashes of a fire or… I just want to scare you badly enough to buy them and not so badly you give up in despair. A pair of HEAVY-DUTY gloves. (not the thin yellow ones you wash the dishes with)
And then number two. Several packages of dust masks for the whole family. Pay a little more and get some with small respirators that are good for germs, fumes, and particles…dust storms and ebola outbreak.
If you think a Hazmat suit might be necessary here are instructions for making one.
