Well, I missed it. We were watching CNBC a month or so back when a report came on about the euro falling against the dollar.
I said "If it gets to 1.10, I'm buying some to hold for our next trip to France."
"Good idea. You could use some of that cash you're hiding in all those envelopes under the mattress." Chris replied.
"No way! I'm saving that for a *real* emergency."
Chris looked at me with the Where does she GET this stuff from? expression. "And what emergency would that be?"
"Like if some wacko terrorist drops a nuke on Port Newark and we have to run like scared rabbits for the hills. You won't laugh at me then, when I have cold hard cash so we can barter with the mountain folk. No sirree Bob"
"I see, so that money is for food, fuel and ammunition."
"Food? No, that's what the ammunition is for." Note to self…add varmit rifle to the Emergency Plan Packing List.
I sleep better at night when I have a plan, you know.
