“There’s A Girl In The Garden.”

http://wrestlingclique.com/images/imported/2011/04/727.jpgMy daughter says she wants to be able to say this one day.  When the zombie apocalypse happens.

If you don’t know where this quote is from, then… well… I just don’t know.  Look it up on Google.  You’re truly missing out if you haven’t seen that movie.

Last week my daughter, my toddler, and I were on our way back to the car from shopping at Trader Joe’s when we heard a bunch of sirens.  I turned to my daughter and said, “What if you saw people running in the parking lot attacking other people right now?  What would you do?”

Disappointingly, she replied, “I’d run back in the store, grab as much canned goods as I could, and then run back to the car.”

I stared at her for a minute and then asked her, “Seriously?  There.  Are.  People.  ATTACKING.  Other.  People.  Right here in front of you in the parking lot, and you want to run back in the store instead of getting in the car, locking the doors, and then driving like mad back home?”

She replied simply, “Yes.”

Now I understand that she’s thinking we need to make sure we have food, and she did explain this, but that is not what I would do.  I just chalked it up to it being because I’m a mom and she’s a kid.  Two completely different thought processes and priorities going on.

So I told finally told her as we were getting into the car, “Well, I just may have to leave you behind then.”

  1. Combine your thinking- you bring the car around back and she meets you out there instead of coming out the front! My husband and I were recently discussing this scenario in reference to our dog. While with our family, she is a 65 lb cuddle-bug but the minute she sees someone she doesn’t know in our space, she is all teeth-showing and barking. Now, in the woods, that is great warning of the roving zombie hordes but in the city, it would bring them down upon us. Solution? We need to drug her until we get out of the city. It seems more humane than letting her get eaten by zombies or severing her vocal cords. I ❤ theoretical zombie preparation discussions!

    1. lol We’d need to drug our dogs, too.

      I don’t think I’d want to chance it with the toddler in the car. She’d start screaming, and that would alert more zombies. They’d swarm the car, and my daughter wouldn’t be able to get to us with her crapload of canned goods.

      Besides, we have plenty of canned goods in our cabinets. And if it comes down to it… well, the cats won’t be that useful during a zombie apocalypse.
