non-fiction

Ever since walking around a corner only to meet face to face with a bear, (Gregory Canyon, Colorado), I have been a firm believer in worst-case scenario preparation. You see, I think we only survived because my backpack contained a noisemaker in the shape of a screaming two-year old. I later learned her noise was a good thing because I’d bought and read as many Worst-Case Scenario books as I could find and learned more about bears. You never know.

Now, the Worst-Case Scenario books help out the shorter set – our kids — with all that is gross. If your child doesn’t know what to do about things like body odor, bad breath, scooping dog poop, gross food your mom serves for dinner, water fountains and avoiding bird poop, this book is for you. Who doesn’t need to know this stuff? I mean, seriously, kids everywhere will be reading this book cover to cover.

For example, you might need to deal with a “Nightmare Booger”. The authors recommend this:

Build an excavator. . .

Fold a tissue in half, grab the center of the fold, then twist the folded halves into a long poker. Dab the tip with a drop of water and — voila — you’ve got a single-use boogie pick stick.”

Now isn’t that handy advice?

And for your viewing pleasure, one of the book’s author’s, David Borgenicht, drinks the world’s grossest smoothie. Warning: read the section on Barf Emergencies before you watch.
