Under The Snow

You were caught in an avalanche. To be rescued, you need to make it through the night. What thought(s) would  give you the strength to go through such a scary, dangerous situation?

What the heck am I doing caught in an avalanche?! I live in one of the hottest places in the world that has never seen snow and does not have anything remotely connected to winter – ever! The only ice we see in our drinks and snow is a Canadian rapper, isn’t he?

I’ve only seen snow once, and do not remember the experience at all as I was just 2 years old when my family visited the UK to see some relatives. That’s it! So if I am caught in an avalanche, I will keep the images of a warm fire, hot toddy and brandy in my mind. I will think of all the shit that I have been through and still being alive to talk about it, I must know how to survive or am lucky in that regards. That will keep me alive and give me the strength to wait it out until help arrives.

Is that a St. Bernard with a barrel of brandy with him?
