(A Classique Doodle from 10/18/2011)
In the months leading up to the apocalypse, people sure seemed to be making it sound like a big deal… but now that it has happened, Brian Hawkins doesn’t get why there was such a fuss. What the heck were they worried about? The apocalypse is awesome.
Still grinning from ear to ear since his dad let him put in the final head-shots to kill the Nuclear Mutants they just came across as they navigate the post-apocalyptic wasteland of Earth, Brian steps back mentally for a moment and reflects on the wonder of it all— out on the open road, less people to deal with, adventure every dang day… he’s even already killed 17 men and mutants and he’s only 9 years old… that’s almost 2 for each year he’s been alive! That’s so cool!
Plus, since clean drinking water is so scarce, his mom isn’t bugging him about taking a bath. She didn’t survive the apocalypse, of course, so she isn’t around to bug him even if there WAS enough water, but still. And last week when scavenging through a pile of rotting corpses, he found a real Indian arrow-head necklace!
The best part, though, is now he finally gets to spend time with his papa… before the apocalypse, dad was always in the office working, traveling; Brian hardly saw him. But now that the rest of his family is dead, he gets all the father and son bonding time a boy could ever hope for.
It just feels nice.
The post-apocalypse is the most fun he’s ever had, and Brian hopes that civilization never claws its way back from the pits of hell.
