Jon: Did I tell you that Amazon is now selling more Kindles than actual paper books?
Me: That’s sad. There’s just something about a real book.
Jon: I know. Besides, when the Apocalypse happens none of the Kindles will work anyway. But I’ll have my stash of paper books and I’ll be ready. And I will have had Lasik surgery by the time the Apocalypse happens, so I won’t have to worry about my glasses.
Me: That’s good. Because if you lost your glasses, I would have to sit around reading books to you.
Jon: No, you’re going to be the hunter and gatherer.
Me: I am better with a gun.
Jon: Yeah, I’d shoot my thumb off.
Maybe I should start hiding his books… and the television… and computer… and anything else that causes his mind to go down these paths. I have a feeling by the time the Apocalypse happens, I’m going to be too exhausted to hunt and gather.
