Zombie Cliche Lookout: Licking Wounds
Even in the zombie apocalypse, you can only push people so far. Sure, the zombies are going to get rid of a lot of the weakness modern civilization has engendered in us, but people will still have their limitations. If they overextend themselves, they’ll break. And in the middle of a zombie outbreak, that breakdown means they get killed, and likely bring a few others down with them.
That’s why it’s so important to be able to take a step back and recover. Survivors need to heal their wounds, get caught up on a little bit of sleep, and hopefully fill their belles on a consistent basis. It might only take a few minutes, or several months. Either way they take a breather, or break down and get eaten.
About this Episode:
I’m about six foot two, so I’m quite a bit taller than the average refrigerator. I picture Cheryl being a bit shorter than that, but not tiny by any means. But, man, that fridge just towers over her. It makes me wonder how many cubic feet are available within.
Discussion Question: Your Breaking Point
In your best judgement, how far into the zombie apocalypse would you be able to make it before needing some sort of safe place to hole up for a while. By which I mean from the initial excitement of the first zombie attack. Assume that, wherever you’re reading this right now is where you are when the zeds show up and start eating people. You get way safe, but have to flee from your home. Now you’re on the run with extremely limited supplies. How long do you think you could make it? Me? I’m thinking maybe a couple of days. I don’t do well when I lose sleep.
