You know what I like? Zombies. You know why I like them? Because they're awesome and I like how they walk. Scott, Aubrey and I have been watching The Walking Dead (not to be confused with The Walken Dead. Click that link. Seriously, you won't regret it). I mean, what's better than a good old zombie apocalypse? I guess a non-apocalypse would be, but then Scott and I couldn't do the zombie walk all around New York City. Now I'm not saying that people don't think we're insane when we do this, but I guarantee they think we're really cool. If you were walking down the streets of the Upper East Side and you saw someone zombie-ing toward you, there is no way you could tell me you would be unhappy about it. In fact, I may let them bite me just to make it more realistic.

Plus, I tend to fall on my face a lot for no reason, so I figure that if I'm zombie-ing when I fall, people will think I'm normal. Like it's all a part of the act, not like I'm 26 and still have trouble walking. Maybe I buy the wrong size of shoes or something. When we go anywhere, I'm pretty sure Scott and Aubrey take bets on how soon I'll fall. Currently, I have 2 pairs of pants without holes in the knees and 5 pairs with holes. And absolutely no tights without holes, though that's not really saying anything. Sometimes I think it's a cute, trendy idea to wear tights. So I put them on, slip on my trendy, real leather boots and leave my house. And it's at that very moment that I remember I hate tights. And all things that squeeze every part of my body into a state of extreme discomfort. Like unitards.

This is a unitard.
That's another reason I love zombies. They get to wear whatever they want, and it's usually baggy. I dare you to find a zombie wearing tights. You won't. Because even though they have a disease that kills them and then wakes them up with nothing but an intense desire to devour humans, they know that tights are terrible.

They also call them "walkers" in the show. And I like that because I like nicknames and it makes me feel like I'm part of the gang. You know, just Rick, Daryl and Julie. Fighting walkers, protecting the children. No big deal. Speaking of Rick and Daryl, I see Rick look-alike's all the time. Like everywhere I go. Scott says they don't actually look like him, but Scott isn't part of the gang so he can't be trusted. Did you see me type "Rick, Daryl, Julie and Scott" up there fighting zombies? Didn't think so. Oh and Daryl. He has a bow and arrows and he never gives up. Just the best. 

This is Rick.

And that's why I like zombies.

  1. I had the same realization about tights! I got a pair at Express for $2, and put them on to wear to a wedding rehearsal dinner under a sweater dress... and immediately regretted the decision. There's a reason I haven't worn tights since I was like 8!
