After watching last Thursday’s Grey’s Anatomy episode, I had a little bit of a crying party. Don’t get me wrong – the episode was sad – but it also made me miss my best friend K just a little bit more than usual.
We’ve always said our friendship is very much like Meredith and Christina’s friendship on Grey’s Anatomy . If you don’t watch the show, then you should know that these “best friends” currently live in two different states. And they are going through A LOT, but never see one another, so they skype 24/7.
This is totally me and Kara… she lives in Canada, I live in MD. My job is always stressing me out – and she is always stressed as she is trying to get into grad school, working overtime, and mentoring kids. I’m married – she is searching for a beau – and we have been known to spend hours on Skype.
It is really hard having a best friend that lives hundreds of miles away. We only get to see each other a couple of times a year.
6 years ago…
So, Christina and Meredith had a grand idea on this past week’s episode. The idea of an adult “bug-out-bag” is just too good to be true. I think I have found a Christmas gift for K….
Christina: You need a bug-out bag.
We are totally making bug-out bags. Since we can’t be with one another when we are bugging out, we can now turn to our adult diaper bags for emergencies.
Here is what we would have in them:
Kara’s Bug Out Bag
1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila
1 Box of Franzia
1 Bag of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Bottle of Ambien
Sex in the City Box Set
Caitlin’s Bug Out Bag
1 bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon
A bag of Reese’s Christmas Bells
Home Alone – the dvd
The Santa Clause – the dvd
1 block of stinky Italian Cheese
1 loaf of crusty Italian bread
MaryAnne – my trusty moose stuffed animal
WHAT WOULD BE IN YOUR “BUG-OUT BAG?”
