Be prepared

The other night, we saw an ad for ABC’s presentation of Castaway. It was the scene where Tom Hanks manages to make fire for the first time. “I actually know how to start a fire without matches,” The Husband told me. “I’ve never had to do it, I just know how. It’s a really weird thing for me to know.”

“Weren’t you a boy scout?” I asked him.


“And isn’t that the sort of thing they teach boy scouts?”

“Well, yeah.”

“And did you learn how to do it in boy scouts?”

“Uh, yeah.”

“So it’s not really all that weird, then.”

“Shut up.”
