The writing prompt today at Our Random View, asks us to explain how we would survive a zombie apocalypse.
When I lived in Connecticut, my neighbor was a member of the local Zombie Response Team. His vehicle is pictured below. I didn’t have to worry about the ZA then. Travis had me covered.
Now, however, I live in Alabama and have not seen one Zombie Response vehicle. Not one.
After asking around, most folks think a good dousing of Holy Water is more than enough to eradicate the zombies. Well, okay…but I’m Jewish. Would Holy Water work for me & my Tribe?
I am doubtful.
Stabbing them in the left eye with a broomstick works well, according to The Walking Dead. But that squishing sound skeeves me out. No can do. Besides, how many times can you use the same broomstick?
So, I have two plans. One is to kill them with kindness, so to speak. Perhaps all these poor undead souls need is a bit of understanding and empathy. Who knows? Maybe in time we’ll all be holding hands, dancing & singing Hava Nagila.
Should this plan fail, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, I guess. Sometimes assimilating is all you can do.
