Preparing for disaster

My best friend, Susan and I used to spend our days preparing for disaster. We'd strap one arm to our bodies and go through the day using only one hand, just in case we ever lost our arm. We blindfolded ourselves, spending hours in darkness for the day we went blind. We were Girl Scouts. We'd been taught to always be prepared. And we were.

Sometimes the other comments are just so damned good that I can't think of anything to say. My recollections of imminent disaster range mostly around THE BOMB and trying to come up with a strategy executable by one person and with no telephone!

By the way, it seemed more than idle serendipity that the word in your Dictionary widget was bombinate.
