Z&B's dance bag isn't your average kit and caboodle. Theirs is an "Emergency Feis-Aid Kit for Feis Moms." Sure, every feis mom [or dad] should have the basics on-hand, in case of bumps, bruises, twisted ankles, stomped-on-toes, and the occasional emergency amputation or apendectomy.
In addition to the usual band-aids and duct tape, Z&B recommend adding a few more important items to your feis-mergency bag of tricks. Yes, we certainly do things differently here in the Southern Region, but this packing list is useful in all regions of Irish dance [not just the deep, and sometimes crazy, South]. This packing list is the perfect starting point for MAIDs [that's Mothers Addicted to Irish Dance] or Feis Dads getting ready for a local feis or major competition.
Emergency Chocolate [dark and liquid, just in case]
Corkscrew [preferably with a bottle opener]
Just your average Cell Phone [...or is it?]
Air Horn [to wake the dazed adjudicator about to judge your DD/DS]
Practical joke dog poo [totally necessary]
Fool-proof Disguise [just in case you're a recent transfer]
Heinz Spotted Dick [it's pudding, it's hilarious, it'll help you make friends!]
& above all else, a sense of humor!
