We may be blown off the face of the planet by hurricane Ike, but at least we won't be at school while it's happening!!!!!
Much as I poked fun, a car with more than a quarter tank of gas MAY have actually been a good idea, because you could use up your entire tank of gas just waiting in line at the one or two stations in town that have any gas left.
But what the heck - a car with a transmission that doesn't buck us into the next century whenever it gets tired might have been a good idea too. Come to think of it, food in the pantry would have been a fantastic idea. But it's okay, I think my aunt said she bought out Houston's entire stock of tuna and peanut butter.
But I got the drinking water part covered at least. I'd like to claim it was because I was ever so practical, but it just happens that I just bought a kajillion water bottles for lunches for the kids earlier in the week.
Luckily The-Guy-Who-Knows-A-Song-About-A-Chicken thinks up all these phantasmagorical ideas like food and gas and we're like good to go for..I dunno... heck...at least a day and a half.
KIDDING! I'm sure we can hold out for longer. He's talking about cooking & stuff...whatever that is.
