I was on my way to work as I was driving through the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex. My husband, Jason, and I were both in the car when we passed a small convenience store that sold beer and chips. I smiled at the clerk, who smiled back with a smile that said “Just in case,” so I bought a bottle of Bud Light. After I sat down at my desk, my mind began to race.
The day before the anniversary, my husband and I were walking to the grocery store. We had gotten out of the car, so we just walked to the store. I was looking through the aisles and noticed that the aisle just behind the beer and chips stand was an aisle for beer and snacks, and that aisle was straight ahead. I smiled. I was going to get me something to eat and to chill, so I walked to that aisle.
We got to the beer aisle and I saw a guy who was already there sitting at a table. He had a Bud Light in front of him. He was watching us. I smiled. I was just going to get a beer, and I walked over and said, “I’d like a beer, please.” He looked at me, and said, “I’m not going to buy you a beer, because you look so young.” I smiled. I had a beer.
I just finished writing this blog post, and I should have written it a few years ago. But at the time, I didn’t know the difference between drinking and not drinking. The difference, however, is that if you don’t get drunk, your life becomes as mundane as a night at the mall. If you get drunk, you realize that the only difference between day and night is not who you are but what you do.
In this case, the difference is how much you drink. If you get drunk, you become someone else. You become the person you think you are, instead of the person you are in reality. If you’re not getting drunk, you can think of the fact that you’re not a person at all as good. You become a zombie. But if you get really drunk, you’ll realize that you actually are a person, and you can finally have a reason to be happy about it.
At the very moment in his life when he thinks he is finally getting sober, Colt is confronted with the fact that things are not as simple as he thought. The visionaries have locked an island into one repeating day so they can piss about for eternity, and they have made Colt a zombie. While he is trying to escape their clutches, he wakes up on the beach to find that he has no memory of who he is or what he did yesterday.
Colt is the only person alive on the island. The other Visionaries are long-dead, and their last wish was to be revived by this one man. Colt is the only person able to remember who he used to be and what he did yesterday. In the last 48 hours, he has lost all of his memories of yesterday.
The game will take him from the beach to the ocean, to the ocean to the air, and then back to the beach. His first goal is to find a way to stop the zombies in their tracks, which is essentially the game’s version of the old joke about how you can’t go home again. The second goal is to get back to the beach so he can get to his party island to find the last surviving Visionaries and kill them.
What started as a way to pass the time of day for him has turned into one of the most important aspects of his life. And that is a hard thing to come to terms with for a man who doesn’t remember the last 48 hour. But the fact that it’s his 12th anniversary means he’s also now fully aware of the changes that have happened in his life.
What is so impressive about Colt Vahn is that he has been able to carry out this mission and continue living his life. This is testament to the strength of his character. He has lived a full, albeit painful, life, and he carries out his missions as if he is still in control. He knows what he wants, and he knows exactly what is required of him. He is the most intelligent and focused person I have ever worked with.
