Zombie Cliche Lookout: Fear of Being Alone
A lot of people aren’t comfortable being alone, whether that means in a dark house at night, or without a significant other. Having someone else around that you can count on – or at least that you think you can count on – is a huge comfort. And, like so many other things we discuss here, this comfort becomes all the more important in the midst of the zombie apocalypse.
And if you’re faced with some sort of disadvantage – let’s say a prior injury leaves you unable to run – having someone else around is bound to save your life sooner or later.
About this Episode:
Boy am I glad to be out of that dark store – at least for now.
For those of you who are interested in what our other characters are doing, don’t worry, we’ll be checking in with them fairly soon.
Discussion Question: A Zombie Vaccine?
Let’s say that you’ve been surviving in the living hell of the zombie apocalypse for a while now. You’ve managed to adjust fairly well to the new challenges, and have a decently safe place to live, with a good stockpile of food, weapons, and medical supplies. It’s not exactly a dream come true, but you’re doing pretty well for yourself.
Suddenly, you start hearing rumors about a potential treatment of vaccine for the zombie plague. It won’t save you from getting killed by zeds, but it might just keep a single bit or scratch from bringing you down. But here’s the problem: it’s not tested. Also, the journey to get there it potentially quite dangerous.
So do you take the risk and try it, or sit tight for a while and hope your luck holds out? Does it make a difference if you’re on your own or in a group? What is your decision process?
