Have you ever needed roadside assistance? What kinds of situations do you think of when you hear the words “emergency call”? What emergency or survival supplies (including 72-hour kits) might be useful in such situations? Write down three ideas and discuss them with a partner.
“get back on one’s feet” = recover physically, emotionally, or financially
“He lost everything in the accident, but he’s slowly getting back on his feet.”
“hit the ceiling” = get very angry
“My dad hit the ceiling when he found out I wrecked the car.”
