The Adventure – To Become a Zombie
One fine summer day as I was driving along in my neighbourhood, I noticed two people on the sidewalk, moving strangely.
Then I noticed the blood…everywhere.
It was so creepy…but interesting. That’s when I saw a few more around the corner. And then again down the street.
There were Zombies everywhere.
Half a year later, I had a strange dream that the world was overrun by zombies. Even stranger was that when I woke up the following morning, I checked my email only to discover that I won two tickets to see Zombieland.
Even stranger was that I went to the movie and won free movies for a month.
At this point in time, I’m thinking Zombies are my good luck charm.
And did I mention that I won another set of tickets to see a totally different zombie film? While I was there, I received a complimentary zombification…and then was voted best zombie in the crowd.
It was likely because out of the competition, I was the only one who dared to bite the announcer in true zombie form.
I didn’t draw any blood, but I did draw the applause needed to win the $300 swag bag.
No guts, no glory.
Clearly, all this Zombie-Luck was pointing me in the direction of the zombie hoards. So, there I was a few months later, stumbling out of my apartment, covered in blood, looking deader than a doornail.
And did I mention it’s my first time babysitting my nephew Noah who was only 10 months old, wondrous at this transformation in his aunty Patticakes?
Well…it was our first Zombie Walk and it was time to spread our infectious joy.
It was a lot of fun, but I certainly didn’t expect to get repeatedly shot by zombie hunters. Who knew?!
