I was having a chat with a colleague this morning on the way in to the office. She commented on how quiet it had been for the last couple of days and how little traffic there seemed to be. At this I jokingly suggested that perhaps the zombie apocalypse had begun in South West London and that it hadn’t reached the news yet.
When I said that I was looking forward to the event and the opportunity for indiscriminate carnage that it would afford, she laughed and said that if it did in fact occur then she would ‘just have a lie-in’.
This struck me as hilarious. Among all the horror, uncertainty, chaos and, let’s face it, opportunity for advancement and revenge, she’d just pull up the blankets and go back to sleep.
On a chilly autumn morning, it was hard to fault her priorities.
