Their PSR’s SOL day 18

Like so many people we watch a lot of Naked and Afraid and debate what we would have done different in their situations or if they made good choices. The show’s participants are given a PSR (primitive survival rating) before they head out on their adventure and afterwards.

I’m thinking of assigning PSR’s to mi amor (hubby) and El Chico (18 year old) because mi amor is starting to panic a little thinking about how I will be gone next week during my school’s spring break. What will he ever do? I mean my goodness, does he really think the fridge and freezer will be left empty, leaving him and El Chico, our youngest to starve to death? My 18 year old would probably survive if they couldn’t leave our property for 21 days. Fortunately for them I’ll be gone five days, hardly enough time for them to “starve” not to mention, they’ll have cars to get them to a number of eateries within five minutes of our house.

But being the planner that I am, I’m planning for a few days of meals, so that El Chico and mi amor (hubby) will not have to worry about having to make that awful decision between hamburgers at AJ’s or burritos at Chipotle. So tonight I’ll be making that list of groceries to stock the fridge and leave them plenty of food in the hope that they don’t have to worry about their PSR’s dropping to low to ever be considered participants for Naked and Afraid.

  1. I can totally hear your writer’s voice “What will he ever do? I mean my goodness, does he really think the fridge and freezer will be left empty..” This makes me think back many years ago when my mom went away and left my dad home with my brother and I and instead of doing his own laundry (or asking me to help – I was a teenager I think) he went out and bought new underwear and undershirts! Maybe I should write about that memory one of these days. Thanks for sharing a great slice and for triggering a memory 🙂
