to bleach, or not to bleach...
that is the question. (sorry, couldn't resist
My husband has taken to the practice of placing cleaned plates upside down and utensils over the open fire for a few seconds or more as an attempt at sterilization. Not sure if it works as well as bleach but it makes him feel better. The kids, my husband and I usually suffer more stomach upsets from the fast food stop on the drive home than from anything we've ever eaten in the field. And why is it that my 11 year old will eat almost anything off a tin plate with a rusty utensil but can't let his food intermix on the plate at home?
What makes some people able to come through catastrophes and others, apparently just as able, strong and brave, go under? It happens in every upheaval. Some people survive; others don't. What qualities are in those who fight their way through triumphantly that are lacking in those who go under...? I only know that the survivors used to call that quality 'gumption.' So I wrote about the people who had gumption and the people who didn't."
