What a cracking day out Dias de los Muertos was.
People really made an effort and on balance looked a whole lot better than you’d expect from a bunch of the undead.
But it got the rusty cogs of my imagination slowly grinding into motion.
When the zombie apocalypse does arrive where’s the best place to be?
Now I’m not the first to ponder this. This weighs heavily on Jon Snow.
You could head to an island because, as we all know, zombies can’t swim, but I’m probably not resourceful enough to make that work.
My pick is a hardware store. Admittedly it would take some patience since you’d have to grow your own food, and you’d have to commit to a vegetarian diet, but there’s plenty of variety and plenty of garden tools/ weaponry.
I pitched the idea to the Game of Thrones producers as a possible plot direction, to which they politely replied that while it could work in theory there are no hardware stores in Westeros but good luck when the time comes.
