Sales Season Heats Up with Westcoast Wildfires
When life hands you fire season, you may as well take advantage of fire sales.
As I enjoyed a cold, refreshing glass of lemonade, made from the last remnants of my once thriving lemon tree that was sadly consumed by the flames, an icy splash of realization hit me. Maybe, just maybe, it's high time I upgraded my bugout bag. Ever since I crash-landed in this sweltering timeline, I've been sweating and struggling to breathe through the perpetual air of BBQ season. And let's be real, if I ever had to make a hasty escape from the janky time machine, what would be my must-have possessions? It's a good idea to mull over these minor details before the "SHTF", as my doomsday-devoted compadres would say.
So, where would one venture when the need for end-of-days deals arises? Well, the veritable treasure trove of budget-friendly prepper paraphernalia, Target, of course. The fact that they sport a bullseye for a logo was just a coincidence that felt entirely on the nose. How could I resist? Having scoped out the sales flyer that seemed as promising as a treasure map, I piloted the janky time machine to a west coast location, just a few fire seasons into the future, to pillage the aisles for some of those urgently needed supplies and comforts that would make even Mad Max a touch jealous.

This'd be super funny if I wasn't choking on the air out here...but no Target branding? Perhaps generic so people fill in their own brand? Zellers is coming back !!
