Fun with school emergency kits

When Mike and I -- wait, let me be honest -- when I reviewed all of the beginning of the year paperwork for Kindergarten, I discovered that we need to create an Emergency Kit for each child that will stay at their school in case of an earthquake and/or the zombie apocalypse. Here’s how it went when I shared this with Mike.

Me: “Oh hey, Mike. I am giving you a school-related task.”

Mike: (exaggerated sigh) “What is it.”

Me: “We have to put together Emergency Kits for both kids. They gave us a list with like, granola bars on it. And socks.”

Mike: (thinks for a minute) “Are we allowed to improvise?”

Me: “I don’t think that would be a good idea. They’re pretty specific on the list.”

Mike: “Are they specific about the kind of emergency?”

Me: “No.”

Mike: “Then I would like to put in a handgun and a carton of cigarettes, because we don’t know what they’re going to need to use for currency.”

Me: “I’m pretty sure that’s not okay.”

Mike: “How about just a handgun and a box of bullets, and a note telling them to take what they need from the other kids.”

Me: “You know what? How about I do this one.”
