Zombie Cliche Lookout: More Good News
One of the worst things about bad news is when you have to share it with the people directly affected by it. Sure, everyone is bummed out when a friend or loved one suffers a setback, but imagine being the person who tells them about it. Naturally, existing in the zombie apocalypse only makes this problem worse. Sure, it’s hard to tell a buddy that their girlfriend is cheating on them, or a coworker that someone else got that big promotion they were gunning for, but neither holds a candle to telling someone that their entire family has been killed and devoured by a horde of zombies. That makes for a rough day.
About this Episode:
So, again, I didn’t do any research about what medicines Tara’s dad might potentially be on that would require refrigeration, but I know there are some. Good enough for me. This is not, after all, a comic about running a pharmacy. It’s a comic about zombies.
Discussion Question: Dentistry
I noticed that dentistry came up a couple of times in the previous episode’s discussion question (sorry for not responding to a lot of the comments; work’s been crazy). I thought this was really interesting, because it’s something a lot of people take for granted the vast majority of the time. For most of us, we only think about the dentist when it’s time for our twice-annual cleaning, or when there’s a problem.
And when we’re in a situation where civilization’s infrastructure is no longer available to us, a dental problem quickly becomes a major emergency. So what would you do in a long term survival situation when you had an extremely painful toothache? Let’s also say that you’ve already tried to wait out the problem, but it only seems to be getting worse.
