Apocalypse Every Day

"The thing about the apocalypse," I say after dinner to our friend Laura, who's visiting us, "is that it's not something that's going to happen to the whole world in some distant future. It's different for everybody."

"It's the death of a loved one, or it's losing your job, or it's getting pregnant, or it's cancer," I gesture to my leg as she nods. "It's a hard break from what came before in your life, and afterwards, nothing is the same, and it's happening all the time."
