he really has bad timing he broke up with his girlfriend of 7 years two weeks before the shit hit the fan
she wanted more from him and he wanted less of her talking about how soon she would be too old to have babies he didn't even want kids he probably should have told her that from the get go
now he will just be alone until he gets the virus and then he will die alone or end up a zombie she probably has already met and married the father of her future children they are probably living in some suburban neighborhood fucking like rabbits so they can replenish the dying population with all their babies
no point in quitting smoking now Joe lights a cigarette alternate his drags with bites of cold pizza
he can't remember the last time he changed his clothes laundry mat is probably closed anyway he wonders if she misses him or if she thought he was too much of an asshole to think of him at all he used to make her smile what is the use of thinking about this now? he changes the channel to take a break from the the growing death toll he settles on The Walking Dead then wonders why he doesn't own a machete
maybe she should call him
stuck in this hotel room the day the earth stood still news is on in the lobby hotel employees hide when she appears everyone is afraid
she flew on a plane just three days ago and now all this in quarantine she feels fine is that a tickle in her throat?
she probably won't be having children anytime soon she suddenly remembers that the man behind her on the plane was coughing the whole flight he is probably dead now in one of those body bags they show on the news
she looks down at her plate of food suddenly not hungry what if they run out of food at the hotel and she wastes away in this room?
she forces herself to eat several bites of the hamburger opens the bottle of complimentary wine they gave her when she was told she couldn't leave
she flips through the channels wanting anything but more news she wonders what he is doing now does he miss her? does he realize what an asshole he was? she stops on some zombie show she hates zombies that is what will come next zombies she checks to see if her door is locked just in case she never thought a plague would come either
she doesn't even have a gun or a knife or pepper spray her mom put pepper spray in her stocking one year for Christmas and she had thought my mom is so over protective she left it in the drawer of her childhood dresser before returning to college
what she really needs is a machete she watches the woman slice up zombies eats some fries and drinks the wine she is going to end up calling him maybe he will change his mind and they can repopulate the earth with their babies
