The Good, The Bad, The Ugly and Everything In Between
Yowzer Trowzer living through an attempted insurrection is not for the faint hearted! I hope I never experience another one in my lifetime! But just in case I should ever find myself in a time of extreme crisis, here is a list of things I learned. Feel free to add yours to the list so we can never say we are not well and truly prepared, mentally and physically!
1.) Putting kids on food rations is not easy!
2.) I am a comfort eater (not easy when you are on food rations)
3.) When retailers limit purchases to 15 items only, what items will make it into your trolley? (I made sure tea, sugar, milk and of course, CHOCOLATE made it into the trolley.)
4.) You will swear A LOT – in your head (continuously) and maybe even out loud too!
5.) Don’t piss off your neighbor: South Africans have a lot of ammunition
6.) Hoarders had their time to shine with packed pantrys!
7.) South African men are the best – working by day, patrolling by night (sorry metro men you are out – rough and rugged is in!)
8.) South African women are epic too – Lara Crofts are alive and well in KZN
