“Zombies? You mean for real?”
“Yes D, a zombie apocalypse. It’s gonna happen.”
“Been watching too many movies?”
She flips me off.
“Predictive programming. Those vaccines be running all sorts of mutations.”
I roll my eyes. She continues.
“They create the virus. Then the vaccine. Then it’s Zombieland.”
“Easy on the conspiracy theories now, alright? Stay away from the news, you going crazy”
“Hey, if that ain’t true, why do the CDC, the Americans, be prepping folks about it?”
“The CDC what?”
“Oh yeah. They got zombie apocalypse prep education going on man, don’t believe me do ya? Google it!”
Note: While Covid continues to obliterate a ton of human lives and the rest of humanity works round the clock to minimize damage, the air is also rife with conspiracy theories and whatnots. The American CDC page created a decade ago dedicated to preparedness to deal with a Zombie apocalypse (I wasn’t kidding, here!) has picked up steam again – this time linked to vaccinations. And there are several others. Conspiracy or not, I hope the world heals and we come out of this stronger and kinder as a species.
