Kevin: What are you doing, Kelly?
Kelly: I'm packing.
Kevin: Packing? Are you going on a vacation?
Kelly: No, I'm not packing for a vacation. I'm preparing a go-bag in case something bad happens.
Kevin: Like what?
Kelly: Like a typhoon or an earthquake.
Kevin: How can a go-bag help you in an earthquake?
Kelly: Anything can happen during an earthquake, so if you're trapped somewhere, the food and water in the bag can last you for some time until help arrives.
Kevin: I see. But I don't think most earthquakes are that strong.
Kelly: You never know. You should respect the power of nature.
Kevin: That's true. Hey, can you put the T-shirt that Patty gave me in it?
Kelly: Well... everyone should pack their own. And don't put just anything in it, or it'll get too heavy.
Kevin: Then what should I put in my go-bag?
Kelly: Well, help me tidy up mine, and then we can make a list for yours.
Kevin: Great! Thanks!
