Zombie Theory

Me: I just realized that San Francisco is uniquely suited to survive the zombie apocalypse because we don’t have cemeteries in town.

Bryan: We’d have to defend against Colma though.

Me: Yeah, but we’re a peninsula.

Bryan: So we’d just build a big zombie wall?

Me: Yeah.

Natalie: I feel pretty safe in the event of a zombie apocalypse because all my friends have guns.

Me: Zombies are already dead, Natalie. You can’t kill them with guns.

Natalie: Yeah you can, you shoot them in the head. I watched Zombieland.

Me: Huh.

Bryan: Point, Natalie.

Natalie: Anyway, I’ve decided that when the zombie apocalypse comes, I’m gonna be a vampire.

Me: Clever. I’ve not heard that take on it. Side with the less annoying undead.

Natalie: Yeah, a vampire could clearly defeat a zombie.

Me: Plus they dress better. And their limbs don’t fall off when they run.

    Oh my gosh that is to funny!

    She has a point, the losing limbs thing could be bad for any wardrobe, really. I’m not so sure about the paleness and orange/red eyes of the vampires either, not to mention the blood. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some red meat, but I prefer mine on the medium side, not rare :) All goods things to think about, I’m sure!

  • Lesley Watson Says:

    Vampires are totally better than zombies. Can you imagine what a zombie SMELLS like?

    I’m on the side of the blood-suckers, for sure.

  • Celina Wyss Says:

    Hehe I totally agree on the whole vampire bit.

  • Ariel Says:

    My zombie survival plan involves shooting the kneecaps of all the people around me, so that I can get away.
    If everyone around me is able bodied, they will outrun me, so I must incapacitate them, thus allowing myself to escape.
    It’s brutal, I know.

    We have this conversation all the time. If all else fails – a ring a fire surrounding our house while tossing chickens over the balcony to appease the zombies.

  • Cristina Says:

    I think I’m going to cry. The conversation was brilliant zombie talk. You are admitted into my circle of zombie friends.

  • Manisha Says:

    Yes, you’re so right! Vampires do dress better.

  • marie mcintosh Says:

    I’ll email this to my mom in Boston. She fears earthquakes, but at least I’m safe from the undead here…

  • Scott Loving Says:

    Sure, vampires get all the cool clothes and they have that whole “Creatures of the Night” thing going for them, but once all the people are gone, who are the vampires going to drink from?

    Advantage: Zombies.

    Zombies are like the roaches of the undead world; hard to get rid of, and they can survive just about anything.

    I know some people may find this funny, but my best friend is a zombie. Just saying.
