Why I don't belong in a post-apocalyptic world...

Mister: What are you doing?

Me: Ignoring your zombies and reading blogs.

There are many reasons that a post-apocalyptic world is not my ideal setting: indoor plumbing gone, grocery stores gone, antibiotics gone, schools gone, Internet gone....
but the biggest one is this:

I am not made to handle zombies. I do not enjoy video games with zombies. I do not enjoy movies with zombies*. I can not wrap my brain around the fiction of zombies and come to any sort of narrative in which I would be useful, except perhaps as bait.

And any future that involves me as bait is one that I am not interested in. Even if it is bait for attractive vampire types.

* Except Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland
