Ahead of the game

Which is where you want to be at all times, right? A helpful hint from Tam:

You might note that the first three letters of “preparedness” are “PRE”. You know, Latin for “before”, “in front of”, “ahead of”. This is not a coincidence. The whole notion of preparedness is that when unexpected stuff happens, you have already taken steps to deal with it. It’s the opposite of running to the store for bread and milk because the weatherman said it was going to snow; you don’t need to do that, because you already have bread and milk. (Or if you’re really a hardcore prepper, sacks of grain and a cow, I suppose.)

Still, some people gotta have their French toast.

    “Bread and milk! Gotta get bread and milk!”

    Yeah, but without eggs, you don’t have French Toast. You just have milk toast.

    Okay, but apparently diapers disappear from store shelves too. I looked up every recipe for French toast I could find and…

    The diapers are for the aftereffects of having to use up the six dozen eggs you bought before the power went out, and which sat unrefrigerated for a week or more after it went out.
