Work gloves. Wasp spray (which can double as mace, in a pinch). Heavy-duty plastic ties (for fence and car hose emergencies). Halter and rope (for loose horse emergencies, which, oddly enough, seem to happen during fence emergencies). Roll of paper towels (for food emergencies). Dental floss. Extra peppermint gum (for post-food emergencies). Small bottle of hand sanitizer and small container of diaper wipes (for pre- AND post-food emergencies). Stuff to recharge and utilize smart phone iPod, if you ever manage to take the time to figure out how to load music on the stupid thing. Extra egg cartons. Gas card, complete with passcode written on it in huge numbers with Sharpie since you always forget it. Various implements of destruction and measurement (pruners, small saw, snow broom, tire-pressure gauge). Blanket for trips with nieces and nephews and/or for impromptu out-of-car-under-tree sanity breaks.
Bring it on, fall quarter. I’m ready.
