my three first aid kits and our kitten, glory.

Why should you carry a first aid kit? Think about the places you go every day – the grocery store, a restaurant, the subway, a kids’ soccer game: if something happened, do you know where to find a first aid kit? If you did find one, would you know how to use it? Would it have what you need?

It doesn’t have to be a full-on disaster scenario to need a first aid kit: a reasonably minor subway accident, for example, will still have injuries. Anyone can step off the curb wrong and twist their ankle, or kids running around can scrape knees. If you carry your own kit, you always know that you have what you need!

The original varicose veins post is by far the most popular thing on this blog. Which makes me really sad – I would so much rather people flock in droves to this one: Enough. Or the one about the Merits of Plain Speech. Or the one about the Beauty of Imperfection and Gracelessness.

But no, it’s stupid old varicose veins.
