What do couples who've been married almost thirty years and in their senior years talk about? You'd think there wouldn't be much left to talk about. But ROM and I still have deep and passionate conversations about serious issues and current events. Just tonight we had a very intense discussion as we watched episodes of the Walking Dead season 2...
Me: I wonder if the walkers starve to death if they go a long time without feeding?
ROM: Probably, their bodies would need fuel to function.
Me: I don't think so. I think they may just go into like a zombie hibernation until they can feed again.
ROM: Zombie hibernation? That's ridiculous. Nothing can live without food.
Me: But they aren't living- duh- they're called The Walking Dead. And even when they are shot or stabbed in the stomach they keep going.
ROM: Don't duh me! Well, if you have all the answers why in the hell did you ask me?
Me: Now don't get all pissy!
ROM: Since when are you a zombie expert?
Me: Good lord, it just occurred to me we're having a serious discussion and arguing over zombie nutritional needs. (And then I laughed so hard I almost peed myself)
ROM: Let's watch one more episode...
And this, boys and girls, is how old people spend their Friday nights.
