I’ve never really understood the concept of an airborne illness, until today. I have no problem admitting that I’m one of those conspiracy theorist people, I’m currently preparing for the zombie apocalypse that is about to take place on September 6th, 2011. Missed the memo? Well, too bad. September 6th 2011 is about to be the biggest zombie apocalypse ever! Okay, sike! Not really, unless you plan on picking up your copy of Dead Island. That game is going to be some addictive, you’ll seriously start plotting out escape plans for the day zombies actually attack.
Dead Island and Resistance 3 are probably going to be the highlights of my month. All this English school work, geology, French, and more English classes is so boring! I mean the only good thing about it, is the fact I will be graduating with my degree in Spring 2012. All the boring work and loss of my personal time is worth it. But those spare moments I do manage to have to myself, I’m going to save those moments for some good old fashioned zombie killing.
Zombie guts are awesome! I don’t like a lot of horror movies, but I love anything that has zombies in it. Dead Island is going to be some great training for us conspiracy theorist out there. Okay, that sounded crazy. I’m not like this hardcore conspiracy guru, but I like to play around with my imagination and have these outlandish conversations with people. It’s pretty awesome. Even if zombies did ever attack, the CDC probably would deny it and save themselves before letting the community know the seriousness of the situation. It’s probably a good idea to have a gask mask handy, just in case a zombie outbreak starts airborne.
Zombies are an unlikely event, but airborne viruses are real. I was watching an episode of H5O last night and this guy ended up getting really sick after touching this dead guy. Come to find out, the guy wasn’t murdered, he died from a lethal airborne virus. That is so scary! I’m not a germ-phobic like Howie Mandell, but I do take precaution when Fall is around. This seems to be the time of year when everyone gets sick. All the coughing, wheezing, and miserable blurry eyes; it’s such an epidemic!
I’m going to try my best to avoid getting sick this Fall. I have too much school work to do and plus I just moved to a place with a nice fitness center, so I’m about to be dropping major lbs. I want to get in the best shape I can and be uber healthy, so no coughing and wheezing over here. Except, it looks like I’m going to have to start dodging the coughs now. My mom is sick.
She was doing perfectly fine the other day. No signs of sickness at all. We were laughing and joking, even talking about this new hot guy that has a sexy accent and asked me out on a date. My mom and I were having the ultimate girl talk. Then all of a sudden, she comes back home and is horribly sick. I was up all night with her because she couldn’t breathe, was wheezing and coughing all over the place, and she looked a mess. Since I had watched H50 and just watched previews for Contagion, I was freaking out! She got really mad at me and told me to calm down. I’ll admit, I forgot the number one Hitchhikers rule I live by: DON’T PANIC!
I’m not panicking anymore and she seems to be doing slightly better. She got some type of airborne sickness and we made a deal, that if she isn’t better by tomorrow morning, I’m taking her to the doctor. But my mom is the type of person, that even though we have full coverage health insurance, she never uses it. She’s old school I guess. But still, a doctor isn’t the worst thing ever. If she doesn’t get better, then I’m taking her to the doctor even if she protests. I just want to make sure she is okay, but it probably wasn’t a good idea to watch a trailer of Contagion and make plans to see it. Oh my, now I’m panicking again!
I need to calm down. It’s just a movie, a movie that looks pretty good! I know that airborne illnesses can spread randomly, but if you have a gask mask and sanitize then there is no worries. I don’t think my mom is super sick, but I seriously need to stop watching horror movies and planning outbreaks in my head. I’m sure once Dead Island comes, I will use my free time to slash zombies instead of freaking out about germs.
