A Word On Zombies

I have been cavorting with a wonderful group of people at Conceited Crusade

and even though it is out of the norm for my blogging I am excited to see what comes out of this one. Stretch the mind right? Writing is a great way to summarize thoughts and you can edit as many times as you want before putting it out into the world. However, this challenge is a ten minute free write that you don’t edit and post when you finish.

Special thanks to The Babe for putting me up to this. Heres mine for the free-write on the subject: zombies.

Zombie: Sometimes this is how I ffeel. Today is like that. I slept very little last night after being at the river all day and I could snooze for days. Zombies are one of these genres that represent something scary and foreboding but represent danger very generically. An unrelenting mindlessness that keeps coming for its victim. I feel like zombies could be diseases, actual zombies, or even public opinion.

I wonder if they could go underwater? Would they just leave a mud or sand. This is where silicon based life would really excel I suppose. Cubic zirconia would be the only choice for nanobots wanting to proclaim their love for another nanobot. Then aliens would land expecting to abduct a cow or something and they would get yelled at by the captain alien for steering the ship to the wrong planet. The first mate alien would be making his case, “I swear there were cows right freaking here!” Insert left-turn-at-Albequ(however you spell that city). Man. Ten minutes takes forever. Where were we?
