A couple of years ago, I was driving down the freeway when I saw this man lying in the middle of the road.
I called the emergency number I was on and the first person I called was my friend.
He was a guy named Steve.
He said, “I’ve been in this zombie apocalypse for four days.
I’ve got all my guns, but I can’t get out.”
We talked for a minute, and then I got up the courage to take him to the hospital.
I’m a licensed practical nurse and my specialty is assisting people with disabilities.
We’ve seen so many people in our profession die in zombie situations that it’s become an everyday thing.
But I was a little worried that he wasn’t going to be okay.
We’re trained to think we’re capable of doing this, and it’s hard to believe we’re in danger.
So I asked him if he had any plans to move forward.
He answered, “No, I just don’t want to go back to the zombie apocalypse.
It’s too stressful.
I can never get back to my old life.”
He was right.
I took him to a hospital, got him evaluated and told him he was in good hands.
Then I told him that Steve had been through this a couple of times.
The next day, Steve had the flu.
He went to a clinic, got checked out and had to be hospitalized again.
We all learned from Steve that he could still walk, talk, and interact with others.
I also learned that Steve was able to make it out of the hospital and back home without needing to wear a life-saving device.
It was an invaluable lesson in survival skills.
This is the kind of experience that will help you survive in a zombie outbreak.
I am a certified life-expert, and I’ve been treating patients for a long time now.
I know how to help patients with a variety of disabilities.
So when Steve got home, he asked if I could make a trip to a movie theater.
The first thing he did was call his friend to ask if he could join us.
He and his friend went to the movie theater and were the first people to get into the theater.
I went to another hospital to get Steve checked out, and when I got back, he was a zombie again.
It took a while, but Steve was stabilized and ready to go home.
So now I’m the first in line for a movie ticket at the theater and have the option of going home when the lights go out.
That’s how I got the flu, and the same thing will happen to me.
It doesn’t matter how old you are or how sick you are, when it comes to the flu or other flu-related illnesses, it’s always a good idea to take the right precautions.
You don’t need to go into a zombie-infested zone to get better.
Just being smart and knowing what you’re doing is enough to keep you alive.
There are plenty of people out there who will tell you they’re going to survive in their own little way.
I don’t know how I’m going to make sure that I get out, but if you do, you’ll know you made the right choice.
