Just Another Cog in the Machine(About this image)
Saturday, watching the game. Sunday, shopping for a packaged, out-of-the-box lifestyle at that big blue store. Monday, the perfect windsor knot and smoothly pressed shirt then back to the cube; waiting for Friday again. It was so comfortably predictable and I bought it all without a question. I was no survivalist, I watched the larger than life celebrities on TV display their prowess at catching fish and building shelters, reenforcing my “gatherer” status in our fragile society. I was another cog in the machine.
How I survived the disastrous changes that fell on earth, I’m not sure. Nor did I know I had the instincts that have seen me through, it has to be more than just luck. I wonder what the reality show survivor stars are doing now?
