Those who don’t follow me on Twitter may not know about some new companions who came into my life earlier this year.
One day, without warning, four green creatures showed up at my doorstep.
Their intentions were clear. They wanted my BRAINS and they wanted to live in Washington, D.C. I said no to the former and yes to the latter. Most days, I think they’re ok with the compromise.
Usually, the zombies wile away the days inside my cubicle.
Even though the food of their nightmares is BRAINS, they’re resigned to drink tea while trying to make sense of the teabag messages.
The zombies also eat the snacks my coworkers bring for them to munch on.
Every once in a while, they escape with me to explore the city.
For the most part, the zombies are too small to cause trouble, but they do get into some embarrassing mischief.
At first, I tried to get the zombies to pack their bags. I worried about the D.C. residents’ safety.
Fortunately for D.C., though, the living move faster than the undead and the zombies haven’t caused the city much of a problem. There’s enough going on here that they blend into the wordwork.
The zombies demanded a special blog post in recognition of their favorite holiday so, in a moment of weakness, I acquiesced. It’s in my best interests to stay on their good side.
Happy Halloween, everybody, from ZombiesDC (and me too)!
