I have been thinking about what I would miss most in a post apocalyptic world a lot lately. We talk about what we would do to survive, what we would have to eat and how to avoid the zombies, but what would we really miss.
There are the obvious, electricity, internet, cars, petrol. But the thing I have decided I would miss the most is
Being able to turn on the tap and have hot water come pouring out is something we take for granted until we lose it.
I love and adore a nice hot shower. I love feeling clean, but it’s the actual act of the shower that I enjoy too. After working all day, one of the best things is to get under that hot water pouring over my head and clearing away the cobwebs. If I am having trouble trying to push through a problem – then a nice hot shower can help nine times out of ten. Feeling tired. Have a hot shower and feel invigorated. But it’s not just showers. Washing the dishes is a hell of a lot easier when you don’t have to heat the water first. Mind you, dishes may be a luxury in a post apocalyptic world.
All of this may seem frivolous when it comes to actually just fighting to survive – but I would really, really miss hot water on demand.
What would be the thing that you miss the most in a post apocalyptic world?
