Often when I can’t sleep, I’ll get up in the middle of the night and watch television.
So, it was one night this week that I stumbled upon “Doomsday Preppers” a new National Geographic television show.
Within 5 minutes, I was both hooked and…terrified. Apparently, there are all sorts of theories on how the world will end.As if I didn’t have enough to worry about, I now need to worry about the North and South Pole switching places and tidal waves destroying our world. Or solar flashes from the Sun, taking out the power grid. Or hyper-inflation causing the world as we know it to disappear, causing a run on groceries and the complete destruction of civilized life.
As I watched mesmerized, I came to know that there are people out there called Preppers…who are already preparing for this impending doomsday.
What the show revealed was that in the event of a nuclear holocaust only Preppers and roaches will survive!
And now ME…because I watched the show.
And now YOU…because I’m going to share all their secrets.
And our conversations will go something like this:
“What are you doing?”
“Stringing ropes of ammo. What about you?”
“Eating dehydrated corn. I’m still trying to figure out how to turn wheat into bread. Do you remember how they did it on that show?”
“No, I fell asleep during that part. Where’s Jay?”
“He and his mother are wearing their gas masks, running around the parameters of the compound. They are loving every minute of all this! Where’s Brody?”
“Ever the optimist, he is outside again, holding his phone up to the sky, desperate to see just one bar.”
“By the way, have I told you how much I hate your guts for saving my life?”
“Tell me about it. There isn’t a day that goes by that I wish I had just watched QVC that night!”
