We have made it to day four. I finally got the song out of my head last night… and today, it’s back. The cup is always half full and at least I’m preparing my not-so-good caroling voice on the off chance someone invites me to sing with them this year.
So, here we go, tip number four:
Ba da bump bump!
On the fourth day of Hanuchristmakwanzakah, the American Red Cross advised me
Don't spread the flu
Please drive safely
And prepare my vehicle for traveling!!!
I know preparedness crackerjack, you are wise beyond your years… but I’ll go ahead and explain it on the off chance that you pass this blog off to someone who is not as preparedness-astute as you.
Dress in several layers of lightweight clothing, which will keep you warmer than a single heavy coat. Wear a hat, preferably one that covers your ears. Seek medical attention immediately if you have symptoms of hypothermia, including confusion, dizziness, exhaustion and severe shivering.
If you are like me, you will wear an undershirt, a top shirt, a sweater, a jacket, a scarf, a coat… and gloves. It’s a good thing I don’t live in New York. I’m cold ALL the time.
OK, preparedness aficionado, you are enabled and empowered to go tell it on the mountain, the street corner or office cubicle!
Maybe this original “12 Days of Christmas” by Sesame Street and John Denver can hold you over until tomorrow.
