Note: Because I have absolutely NO challenges in my life, and because I have little to do, I decided to bring on some craziness as I am SO sane and all. To jazz up my days, my writing, and my attempt to stave off Alzheimers, I registered with NaBloPoMo AGAIN. How could I not? The theme is FICTION!
To place time constraints on this project, I decided to play around with 50-word Fiction/Stories. I may scrimp on the word-count, but hopefully not on creativity. Let me know what you think. About the stories; NOT my mental condition.
Why didn’t I take Family Home Evenings seriously? Especially nights when Mom
produced giant garbage bags and begged us to organize 72-hour kits.
I thought Mormons did this for “fun.” And to prepare for IMPROBABLE catastrophes.
I didn’t know about the Zombie Apocalypse. Why didn’t Mom mention that?

Hello there, following over from the NaBloPoMo blogroll.
You won me over by starting the month off with zombie apocalypse flash. Although I’m curious about what is in those 72-hour kits, it could make the difference between life and zombie-ism for me in my brood.
Good luck this month.

Hi and Welcome! So happy you dropped by! Not many folks who find me comment, and so I truly appreciate you! I actually researched those zombie “grab and go” bags and found that the basic stuff – food, water, flashlight, etc. – is the same as any emergency kit. Where “Zombie-survivalists” differ is in what weaponry to include. Some maintain that you should carry tools that can work as defense weapons – crow bars can pry open doors and windows to get into hiding places or to “borrow” supplies, AND it can bash in a Zombie’s head. Same with an ax – chop wood AND decapitate. Other “survivalists” claim that is NOT enough. One must tote an automatic weapon that has the power for near mass destruction – you know, in case you are surrounded, you can just let ‘er rip. But you also have to consider all that ammo you’d need to carry. My advice: include whatever works for you and your moral conscience. =)
