Apocalypse Now

It's Road Trip Wednesday time again...
What kind of apocalypse do you think would be most interesting to survive through?

Um, how about none. That's right, NONE.

Whenever I think of zombies taking over the world or a gigantic meteor shower raining down on all of us or aliens attacking, I just want to crawl into a hole and hide. Here's why. (Aside from me being a scaredy-cat.)

I guess if you live in Orlando- you're all set

I've got kids. Four of them. They're growing up so I don't have to worry about diapers or formula or all of that, thank goodness. But imagining something terrible happening just makes me freak out for them. Would I be able to take care of them all? Would I be able to feed them? Clothe them? Get them to safety? Would I know what to do? Would I be calm without panicking?

So many questions plague my mind when I think of this, even some really awful ones like, if I had to let one kid go, could I do it? (This has haunted me ever since I heard a parent had to let their older child go during the tsunami because they couldn't hold two kids without being swept away.) What would I do when faced with one of these impossible situations?

I have no clue. All of it freaks me out. I just want my kids to be safe. So I prefer not to think about this kind of stuff, thank you very much. Next question.

  1. Yikes! What a terrible apocalypse question. If you need an easier one for the future, go with a solar flare apocalypse (all electronics die).

    And yeah, to really think about the apocalypse, um, well, let's face it, we'll mostly be part of the zombie hoards. Wow, I'm a really upper today!
