Survey of Sol 3: Emergency Bag

I shake the dust off the next artifact. It is a shoulder-bag containing some clothing, a small electronic device, and a set of odd oblong items.




The sirens were sudden and deafening, lights flashing across the sooty sky, and I was momentarily disoriented. Another test?

The double pulse of the siren told me no. This was for real. A strike, about to hit.

I grabbed my tote bag, the one Mom sewed. I couldn't think. You're supposed to have an emergency bag. You're supposed to be *prepared*, and I wasn't, could never be - I grabbed shirts, underwear, a set of pads, my link, everything I could think of, and I ran for the shelter -

And everything went white -

Be prepared! Reversible tote bag and cotton flannel menstrual pads, both by Spoothbrush.

Sorry so short - unexpected interruption in flow. Is cool now.
