This time of year means many things to many people but for me? It means zombies as far as the eye can see. It means Walking Dead on Sundays and zombie movies on the SyFy network. It used to mean dressing up as a zombie and doing the zombie walks.
Last year my friend and I did the Miami Zombie Walk. I was a zombie nurse and also four months pregnant and the walk was about five miles. My feet hurt in ways I cannot begin to describe.
For five miles through south beach I was a blood drippy mess of a nurse. We wandered through restaurants and harassed patrons. We plastered ourselves against windows and just bled on them while people stared at us in horror. 60 zombies rampaging our way through South Beach. It. Was. Epic.
This year? I have a different type of epic. This year I have my munchkin and I get to introduce him to a world that is new and interesting and wonderful.
And yet.. there will always be time for zombies. Always.
For those of you that celebrate.. have a happy, creepy, and safe Holloween.
