It’s Not Zombies You Should Fear

So it turns out that my “Walking Dead” family is not quite ready for a zombie apocalypse just yet.   We live in the country which means we get our water from a well.  To get that water requires a pump and ours died this week.   Which meant no water.  Nada, nuthin’ not a drop to be had in the house.   My family prides itself on the “idea” that we could be self sufficient and fight off zombies, ghosts, terrorists, door to door sales people and all other sorts of evil things…just like they do on tv and in the movies.   Except on tv and in the movies they rarely ever show the good guys needing to take a shower or use the bathroom.

Panic set in when I made the rounds and knocked on bedroom doors at 4 am (the day we discovered the water pump had given up) to inform our warriors that hot showers and the luxury of flushing toilets would not be a part of their morning rituals.   Hasty plans were made to shower at friend’s houses or head to the local gym’s locker room.   My second oldest son did get rather creative with an old plastic Walmart shopping bag when nature called (think:  camping potty).

We had a new water pump installed after about 24 hours of zero H2O,  The consensus among my fearless warriors was that the “suckiest part about a Zombie Apocalypse would not be the Zombies.”  They all decided that the worst part would be a lack of water and no indoor plumbing and “smelling yourself and not being able to take a hot shower and  ”where would you go and what would you use for toilet paper?”
