#5 Never Pick Up a Tarantula

“Be very, very afraid. When you leave home, grave danger awaits. You might be mugged; attacked by scorpions, piranhas, or tarantulas; trapped in a falling plane or elevator, a runaway train, a sandstorm, a riptide, or a riot.” But now we’ll be safe, because our IDEM friends gave us a copy of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Travel, so we know what not to do: never pick up a tarantula and don't yank the reins of a runaway camel. And if a leech invades our air passage, we’ll gargle with a 50% solution of 80-proof alcohol and we’ll remember not to inhale.
Thank you, IDEM, for your concern, your good wishes, the candy-filled weapon, the penny architecture kit, the palm trees, the Treasure Island video, and the scrumptious send-off!

Yours in hoping we never need that survival handbook,
