The Zombie Apocalypse
This started as a typical morning. I got up, got the kids off to school and had a little breakfast before I sat down with my laptop to get some work done. As I was checking my emails on this beautiful, clear New Hampshire day, the power went out. Poof! And because I’m a Geek my first thought was “Skynet or Zombies?” Since my laptop was still happily humming away and had not turned on me, I decided Zombie Apocalypse. The eerie silence of my home settled around me and I tweeted my assessment of the situation. Within minutes, no seconds, I received answering tweets to make sure I was properly prepared. Old LPs, flamethrowers, cricket bats, shotguns, sunglasses. Twinkies and possibly a phone call to Will Smith because, duh, he’s Will Smith were all required items. I mentally scanned my supplies, found I had more of those items on hand than you might think, and then the power came back. Dang, I was so ready to break out that flamethrower, but when the time comes I am good to go. What about you?
