"Isn't it ironic, don't ya think,
It's like rain on your wedding day,
It's a free ride when you've already paid.
It's the good advice that you just didn't take...."
It's buying 4 gallons of water because the water main breaks,
then coming home and finding it fixed.
When you have no water for 3 hours, your mind is free to wonder about what would happen if I was truly out of water for days. Would I be prepared? Whenever I'm asked if I have a "72-hr kit" I think I'll be just fine. I have plenty of Prego and such. But I realized today that no matter how much Prego or how many spaghetti noodles I had, I would be nowhere without water! So I finally decided to go purchase a few gallons of water. So that 1.) if my water stayed off for a long time, I would have water; and 2.) If it ever happened again, I would be prepared. (Also knowing that I didn't have water made me excessively thirsty!!)
It doesn't matter if people think that what I did was stupid. "You should have waited it out." -Or the looks that say, "Why did you just go buy water, are water is on now?",and so on. I now have 4-gallons of water. I will not feel so "threatened" the next time this happens. I am a little better prepared. You never know what will happened. Water is a necessity of life, and I have it now. The people around me who are thinking that I just wasted less than 4 dollars on water can go slap themselves silly. Part of me feels like Noah and the building of the ark! Noah was prepared, as I am.
Bring it on!!!
