A Serious Question

If a nuclear bomb were about to go off and you and your loved ones were being evacuated to an underground safe area, where you would spend the next 6 months of your life, and they would only allow you to bring one item besides the clothes on your back – it could be anything at all but just one – what would you bring?

I’ve thought long and hard about this and decided I would defiantly want to bring a pair of clean underwear. You can never underestimate the power of clean underwear. I mean who doesn’t want a change of clean underwear. I’m sure everyone would after a few days of living underground together.

Yea, I’m almost certain that my one item would be a nice change of underwear – nothing to fancy – just clean and comfy, and maybe that glow in the dark just in case it is dark where we’re at.

Wait a minute though. Maybe, instead of underwear, I should take my woobie (my blanket that I’ve had since I was three). I wouldn’t want to leave it behind. Tough call, but definitely between clean underwear and my woobie. Sheesh! I really hope I don’t ever have to make such a decision. Maybe I could convince them – and by them I mean the powers that be – to let me bring two items.

Then again, probably not, because then everyone would want to. I know one thing for sure, if I chose to bring clean underwear, there'ss no way in you know what, that I'd convince Emily (my wife) to bring my woobie for me. So that’s not even an option.

Maybe I could simply turn my woobie into a pair of underwear. Then that way I could have the best of both worlds and still only be bringing one item. A change of underwear and my woobie all in one. Wow, that’s really not a half bad idea. Now the only question is whether or not I’d have enough time to make my woobie underwear before the bomb went off? It’s a chance I’m willing to take. I mean if I couldn’t have both a change of underwear and my woobie, I’d just as soon let the bomb take me.

So what would you guys bring with you?

I think you ought to just make that woobie right into a pair of comfy unders right now....then you'd be all prepared and stuff. The scriptures say that if ye are prepared ye shall not fear. Take it to heart, my friend....prepare now!

Personally, I don't see you going ANYWHERE without woobie, so don't even kid yourself know what you'd choose!

You better hope they have a washing machine down there, or those fresh panties of yours will become dirty drawers by day 2. I'd take a deck of cards. Shuffle up and deal.

hmm...deck of cards is a good one. Although my first thought was a toothbrush.

Life is just too funny to be taken so seriously
