“Remember when we used to just… talk?”
“Remember when we used to have things to say?”
“Remember when we used to have things to do?”
“Remember when we didn’t have such great memory?”
“Remember when we had more important stuff to remember?”
…and so on.
The 2023 Mnemonic Plague.
After the chlorophyll plague swept through the planet’s vegetation, the few remaining plants and trees became very rare and precious.
But I found a solution. I build concrete gardens. Wood, even dead wood, is scarce. But the rocks needed for concrete are everywhere.
Really wish I had green paint, though.
On a boring day at the passport office, some guy burst in. Looked like he’d been attacked by a bear.
Uncharacteristically, government employees rushed to help him. He was later taken by ambulance.
Turns out he’d infected all the employees with the zombie plague.
Didn’t affect their work performance, though.
