The end of the world, December 21st.
I don’t typically take doomsday predictions seriously, but this one has had me wondering, what is going to happen? “Probably nothing”, my rational mind tells me…but what if? What if the world implodes/explodes? What if The Day After Tomorrow happens and we get thrown into some weird climate change? And the scariest of all – what if December 21st marks the beginning of the zombie apocalypse?
If that weren’t enough, after reading this the other day, I realized – I need to figure out what to wear! I’ll be on vacation on the 21st so I won’t be at work, which means I have options:
1. Do I want to look fierce?
While looking fierce has the advantage of, well, looking fierce – it’s not the most comfortable of options. For me, looking fierce usually involves heels and a pencil skirt or dress of some kind. And ironing. I hate ironing. If I’m going to go down in some sort of fiery explosion or get sucked into a giant tornado, as I’m either exploding or being sucked away, hopefully my husband’s last thought will be, “Damn, my wife looked hot.”
But, if I’m going to have to be fighting for the survival of myself and my loved ones, it just doesn’t make a lot of sense. For that, I’d need something comfortable, which brings me to…
2. Do I want to go cute but casual?
Logistically speaking, this one seems to make the most sense. In the case that the 21st does mark the beginning of the zombie apocalypse, catastrophic climate change, or it’s all out nuclear war and we’re plunged into some sort of Hunger Games scenario – casual yet functional seems to be the way to go. However, if it’s going to be the last wardrobe change I’ll have for a while, I’ll need to like it. I’m not sure what the weather will be like (mental note, check weather for the 21st), but I’m thinking layers would be the right thing to wear. Plus I got a cute sweater today that I’m looking forward to wearing – it would be perfect for the end of the world.
3. Do I want to go totally comfortable and observe the end of the world while in my pajamas?
Ideally, on the 21st I’ll be able to just veg with the hubs and my girls, wrap gifts, drink hot chocolate and watch Christmas movies all day. And nothing is more appropriate for that than pajamas. My JCrew pajamas, (of course), but pajamas none the less.
Come to think of it, this by far sounds like the best option. But I’ll keep my zombie fighting jacket, cute new sweater and boots handy, just in case…
Ready to face the end of the world in style,
