I ran to Wal Mart yesterday to pick up some sewing supplies for the new purse my friend and I are making (AKA - honing our zombie survival skillz by cornering the market on bag/clothing production). While I looked for temporary spray adhesive, I spied quite a few nifty little survival items along the way. Things that usually... I had no clue the store even carried. Like:
1. Exacto knives. Sharp little buggers... good for cutting, and in a dire survival attempt... stabbing... I also envisioned them as making decent crossbow bolts...
2. Pliers - needle nose pliers to be exact. In the jewelery making section. Millions of uses... never know when you will have to do your own stitching of a wounded comrade...
3. Unexpected sources of food - the party supply/bridal section has icing (some just has to be mixed with water) - cake confections, party favors (in all arrays of candy). It's not good healthy substantial food - but if it's some icing or starve.... And how many people are going to raid the grocery for icing? Thinking outside the box.
Anyway it got me to thinking. Do you know your grocery store? Know the layout of where everything is (should be). Do you know the exits and entrances. Do you know the quickest way to grab all you need and get out? You never know when you will need this info....
A smile is a curve that can set things straight!
