Okay BougieLand, open mic day - trapped for 69 days 2300 feet below ground with 32 co-workers in a tight, dark space. No TV, no internet, no cell phones, no family. (No Twitter?!) How would you react, what would you think, what would you ask rescue workers to send down?
If you haven't watched any of the rescues, you have to see this. THIS is reality TV at it's finest. From CNN:
And what's the first thing you do when you come up? You have a twenty minute ascent in a tiny steel cage to think on it. Thoughts, comments, insights?
Me? I'm not claustrophobic but this would sorely test my limited patience. I don't want to dwell on the bathroom facilities dilemma. If they sent me down a pen and paper (and an iPod?); with food and water - I'd be okay. Not happy but okay. First thing when I got out of there? Head to toe spa and beauty treatment. Followed by surf and turf with a huge bottle of red wine. After I'm human again, I'll be ready for my close up. Seriously? Mining has never been on my list of probable professions. Thank God I had (have) choices in life.
