“I’m beginning to think peace is something we made up to keep us from being satisfied with all this luscious chaos.” – Brian Andreus, the Story People
How prepared are you for the end of the world — an annihilating meteor shower, a nuclear blast from some developing country run by a lunatic, or the zombie apocalypse?
Not very prepared, is my answer, not very prepared at all. Partly it’s because the few shreds of optimism I keep close to my heart tell me not to believe bad things will happen, at least not on a catastrophic scale. I’m also too lazy to spend time and money amassing the things on those emergency checklists.
And even if I did get it together to gather those things, when the time came to use them, my batteries would probably be dead and my medicines expired — that’s just how “preparedness” has always gone for me.
