Of jesters and minstrels

Of course, the system that allowed for jesters and minstrels to exist is still a system. If all of society’s structures collapsed, probably all those years at summer camp learning about outdoor living would become infinitely more important. Good thing I know how to do a J stroke in a canoe, or else I’d be doomed for sure! But actually, there are a lot of little skills I have because of summer camp. I can build a couple different kinds of fires. I can do basic orienteering. I know how to flip an overturned canoe. I… can roast a mean marshmallow.
okay, so most of my skills don’t really have value in a post-apocalyptic situation. Time to learn how to skin a goat.
