My other encounter today was with a pile of dog shit. Everyone steps in dog shit every now and again and if this were just an ordinary dog-shit incident, I probably wouldn't even mention it. But this wasn't your everyday dog-shit encounter, this encounter happened in the refridgerator isle of Best Buy. Why was there dog shit in an isle at Best Buy? I have no answer for that, but it happened. And I had to wait 10 minutes standing in one shoe while one of the sales people took my shoe in the back and cleaned it off. This didn't look like someone brought it in from outside and it got on the floor, it looked like a dog took a shit by the Kenmores. I'm really hoping it was a dog.
One last thing, The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman is the best damn comic out right now. I don't care if you don't like comic books and don't like Zombies, go to Borders (or other chain book store) and pick up one of the collected paperbacks.
"How many hours are in a day when you don't spend half of them watching television? When is the last time any of us REALLY worked to get something that we wanted? How long has it been since any of us really NEEDED something that we WANTED?
The world we knew is gone.
The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled, no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV.
In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living."
