List Says You Need These 20 Things To Survive – Coffee Comes In At 12
I was watching a tv show a while back and they asked people the things that they needed to survive. Just basic survival, day-to-day stuff, not zombie apocalypse survival. I was pretty surprised at the answers:
1. An internet connection.
3. Cuddling. Yep, seriously.
4. A trustworthy best friend.
5. Daily showers.
6. Central heating.
7. A cup of tea. The Brit’s did the survey, as you can tell by this one!
8. Saying "I love you" once in a while.
9. A solid marriage.
10. A car.
13. Chocolate. Really? 13th?
14. A night in on the couch.
15. A glass of wine. Really? 15th??
16. A good cry once in a while.
17. A big breakfast.
18. A nice vacation.
19. An iPhone.
So it got me to thinking, what are the bare necessities for living in the El Paso? I mean, if you know El Paso, you know. We are pretty unique around here so I think these are the things that we need to survive:
1. Shade: Walk outside during the summer's 103 heat and you'll agree.
2. A margarita: You're going to need to stay hydrated, so make sure you have supplies.
3. AC in the car: Ever wonder what a chicken in an oven feels like? Ride around in a car in El Paso in the summer that doesn't have AC and you'll find out real fast.
4. A friend with a backyard swimming pool: Along with the shade and your margarita you're going to need some water to dangle your feet in.
5. A grandchild by the time you're 40: Ask me, I'll tell you.
6. At least one male family member who still rocks Drakkar Noir: When I was a kid the old school cologne was English Leather. Drakkar Noir is the go to old school cologne now.
7. A surefire recipe for chili con queso: You need something to dip your tortilla chips into while you're drinking your margarita.
8. A passable cumbia: We will point and laugh at you at the quince if you can't cumbia.
9. "Your Chico's": Yes, there are Chico's Tacos all over town, but you only go to "your's" because it's the best in the city.
10. A tv in your garage: You don't want people messing up your house when they come over to watch the fights or the game. Out in the garage is the only place to watch a sporting event.
