I have a confession to make, I love zombie movies. You would never know it to look at me, but I do. After all, how many forty-somethings like them? Not many would be my guess. They are more a teenage thing, but I still like them and I have quite a collection. I am also a fan of the tv series The Walking Dead. I just got the first season on DVD.
If you were to ask me why I like zombie movies I could give a few reasons but what it boils down to is that zombies are slow. I think I would have half a chance if I came across one. And if I was packing, I would have no trouble blowing its brains out. I know that because I took a zombie survival test and it told me so. The test asked things like if you saw a friend that was now a zombie would I have the guts to shoot. Of course, everyone knows that once your a zombie their is no cure, so I would put them out of their misery and I would expect the same from them. However, the zombie test said that I was very likely to survive an outbreak of zombyism(there is that pesky spell check telling me that zombyism isn't a word) because I am an alpha-female. That's me alright. I'm a tough as nails, gun-packing, zombie killing, 21st century woman and if any zombie gets in my way look out.
My daughters friend is a zombie movie lover too and the other day she told my daughter that if their was a zombie outbreak she and I would survive. So I have confirmation that it's not just my opinion.
Of course, I'm relatively sure that zombies don't exist, at least right now. So I will just keep my soft and puffy self on the couch doing research for when the day comes when I have to break out the alpha-female in me.
