A wedding coming up? Consider this gear

John Taylor: September 19, 20070 Comments

The groom's father is basically just supposed to show up. And remember that he's supposed to pay for the rehearsal dinner. And buy a swell wedding gift. Well, with a teenie-tiny reminder or two, I did my job.


However, since this is the health care biz, and in the interest of full disclosure, here's what my wife packed in her emergency bags if things went sideways at the wedding (they didn't at least not while we were there).  I think this is where somebody yells "semper paratus!"


Water bottles... first-aid kit... instant stain remover... toilet seat covers... hand wipes... disinfectant wipes... toothbrush and toothpaste... dental floss... eye drops... shoe wipes and polish... super-bonding glue... fabric glue... sewing kit, buttons, scissors, safety pins... pads/tampons... men's handkerchiefs... elastic bandages... knee-high nylons... glue gun and glue stick... sticky-backed Velcro... masking tape.... Scotch tape... matches... petroleum jelly... breath mints... notepad... pen... permanent markers...  


As you might figure, I've got a lot of leftover supplies.  I also heard reasons why each item was a "must have" -- in case I didn't know.  In the end, a plastic bag might have saved the day for the person who fell in the pool with an iPhone in his pocket.
