So, yesterday morning I was driving my daughter to school. We have some great conversations. This one went something like this:
E: Mom, What does cataclysmic mean?
Me: (looking it up on my phone) a violent upheaval that causes great destruction or fundamental change (source)
E: So, the same thing as an apocalypse?
Me: Kind of, you can't survive an apocalypse, but you could possibly survive something cataclysmic.
E: What about a zombie apocalypse, can you survive that?
Me: Zombies aren't real
E: But, what if they were real?
Me: Then, yes I could survive it because I will just ride in on my magical unicorn and stab them with it's horn.
E: I'll get my dragon...
We both found this conversation extremely humorous.
This morning, while having Donut Friday on Thursday (she has early practice on Friday morning); we were telling the conversation to my husband. We had yet another funny conversation. A little back information: My husband is in IT and is a database admin. He writes code for stuff not using spaces.
(after telling story to my husband S)
S: Well, zombies are real.
Me: Oh, you are one of "those"
S: No, really people who did not prep when disaster strikes are called zombies because they will savage for and do anything to survive.
S: I said that at first too, but a friend (who runs a prepper store) was telling me that is what they were called. Look it up. Google zombies space prepping
-so that is exactly what I googled "zombies space prepping"
Me: This is about alien zombies
S: What did you type in?
-I showed him
S: You weren't supposed to put the word space in. I just told you that so you knew to put a space in.
Me: Did you not think I would put a space in between words?? Why would you tell me space unless you didn't want me to include it? We don't say "space" in between words when we talk... You are in the real world and not coding world right now. I know to put spaces in between words.
S: I can't believe you actually typed the word "space"
E: The zombies are going to eat you first, Dad.
I am sure the people sitting behind us were thinking we are crazy.
Our mornings were filled with unicorns, dragons, zombies, and apparently aliens...haha
