My Vision of a Post-Apocalyptic World

These days I’ve discovered a new treat called kawahagi mirin. It’s basically a filefish fillet marinated in Japanese mirin and dried. I like to roast it over an open flame on the stove before eating it.

So as I was roasting two, I told Hero Material: Hey don’t you think this is just like some post-apocalyptic world?

Hero Material: Huh?

Me: You know, it’s like the world just exploded, and we have to cook over the open flames!

Hero Material: *laughs*

Me: What?????

Hero Material: In your post-Apocalyptic world, you can get flames by pressing a button?

Me: Well…it’s kinda important to be able to make hot food…

Guess I won’t last very long in Hero Material’s version of the post-apocalyptic world.

    I have many different versions of an apolyptic word, so many approaches in books I write that any one way seems stifled. Of course, like all future versions, there is incredible destruction, it’s just the characters have their own unique way for dealing with it and how much or how little it effects their surroundings. For instance in one book the “end” comes as a result of supernatural beings, in another, from scientist’s experimentation, still another from us ourselves. The stories are endless and the possibilities limitless as well. I do belive that the primitive methods of cooking as well as other simples measures would be dead on though.
