The “Worst-Case Scenario” series is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and the publisher, Chronicle Books, has given me three copies to give away. So, here’s the contest: email meÂ (firstname.lastname@example.org)Â a ‘worst-case scenario’ you have been in and how you dealt with it. The first three next two* people who do so will receive a “Worst Case Scenario” series book.)
*First Submission/Winner — Lesley Fan, New York, NY — “The worst-case scenario that I’ve been in happened when I was in another country with my then-boyfriend (now-husband). He got seriously ill with food poisoning and needed to see a doctor immediately, but neither of us spoke the language at all–and our baggage, with our phrase books, had been delayed. My hand gestures (and more than a little persistence) saved the day; it’s amazing how creative you can get in a pinch!
Clearly I’ve lead a pretty charmed life, free of rampaging bears and the like, but I really did feel more panicked than I’ve ever felt in that situation, and everything came out already, thankfully.”
Two more books left.
