Ready to bug out

StaffAndSword.jpgIt’s become fashionable to have a bug-out bag, “a portable kit that normally contains the items one would require to survive for seventy-two hours,” dixit Wikipedia (so it must be true).

In the corner of my office, I have a hiking staff and a sword. You can bug out to wherever you want, but I’m going through the portal into fantasyland. I’ve read the guidebook, and those are the essentials.

I’m prepared.
