It’s been quite a week here in Big D.
There’s the Ebola popping up in the same hospital my twins were born. You may have heard a little about that. But, I’m sure there’s nothing to worry about since all of my Facebook friends appear to be experts on the disease.
Then there was a storm yesterday that broke the local record for straight line winds—100mph. We get rough storms here a lot so I didn’t think much of it, but there was a panic in the air I’d never quite felt.
The storm hit just as I was picking the kids up from school. The principal was running after the kids who had started walking home to put them in shelter. The rain started coming down a minute later. Leaving the school we saw a man lying in the middle of the street. He had just been struck off his motorcycle. Help was there but I can’t be sure he wasn’t dead. A mile later we saw a car on fire in the ditch. The ride home was like the beginning of a disaster flick. Now there’s no power at the school and I have the kids home all day.
What I’m saying is the apocalypse is here—if ever so briefly and I think we could all use a few laughs. Gone to the Dogs is a story about two dogs who survive the apocalypse:
Sasquatch and Fidget have survived a viral epidemic. But, their human didn’t. Now this Great Dane and beagle are trapped inside with no thumbs to let them out. What will they do? How will they survive? Where will they “go”? Find out in Gone to the Dogs.
Note: I wrote this before Ebola set up shop in my city. So the epidemic in the story probably isn’t Ebola because the government says we’re going to be just fine. I’m sure they know what they’re doing.
Here’s a picture of the contracted crew cleaning up Ebola puke with a pressure washer.
I have no idea how to properly clean up Ebola so I’m not going to throw blind criticism their way. I’m sure this is correct and that all the doctors wearing hazmat suits are just being silly since obviously a ball cap and some sneakers work just fine.
Have a great weekend.
