My husband is the kind of person who prepares for a disaster. Being a butterfly, I don’t always think that way. He takes his role as caretaker seriously. He is quite serious about home security and having enough essentials on hand in case of a natural or manmade disaster.
It is very important to my husband that we have sufficient bottled water on hand in case of an emergency. It really isn’t a bad idea. Even though I tease him about it (and I’m going to stop doing that) I realize that his ideas are prudent.
We also have 10 bottles of ketchup on hand. That’s because I’m a shopper and it was on sale. My husband said, “That’s ok. In case of emergency, you can drink ketchup.” My brother saw the ketchup and asked if I was getting ready for Armgeddon. I said, “No. It was just on sale.” 🙂
