Hey, did you hear that there’s, like, a hurricane hitting the east coast this weekend?
Apparently it’s a pretty big deal. A much bigger deal than I thought it was, until I listened to the news on the way to work this morning. I was under the impression that my weekend was going to be just a bit rainy; the governor of Maryland has already declared a state of emergency.
So, being the responsible adults that we are, Nick and I went shopping in preparation for Irene’s arrival.
(Crappiest visitor ever, if you ask me).
We went to the store and picked up the essentials:
Things like pizza. And tortilla chips. And enough peanut butter to last until the first snowfall.
(Oh, please. Who am I kidding? 40 oz of peanut butter will barely last a week in this house).
Don’t worry. We didn’t only make frivolous purchases. We also bought a huge jug of water. And a 2 liter bottle of Coke Zero.
Hey, if the electricity goes out and I can’t make coffee, we’ll all be glad that I had some caffeine.
Now if you’ll excuse me, Nick and I have
two seasons of Mad Men to get through some serious safety precautions to make.
How are you preparing for Irene? Anybody else totally clueless when it comes to shopping for hurricane essentials?
Nick and I were just wandering the aisles, picking out things that looked delicious and non-perishable. It seemed like a fair strategy!
All joking aside, be safe this weekend, everyone!
