My friend Edouard

No fruit.
No bananas.
No bread.
Dude. Anna and I walked into WalMart (cracking jokes and being silly) to grab a funnel. And then we noticed. There wasn't any food left. Combine that with the 3 page instructions our apartment complex left on our doors, and the fact that they took all the pool furniture away, and that gas lines were crazy, and that stores were taking down their signs, and there were 17 people in line (at 11 pm) to fill up water bottles...I'm feeling a little under prepared maybe. No lie though, I am kinda excited! I like to shake things up a bit! No need for every day to look like the last! If the tornado chaser gig doesn't work out, I might try for the "stand up in hurricane force winds and give the weather report" job.
