Zombie ~ 10/6/22

Today’s prompt is Zombie. #tshalloweenchallenge to locate me. LINK to daily post.

Pony & all his friends used to make movies wanting to be the next George Romero or John Carpenter. They especially liked trying their hands at special effects. The living dead & gore was the genre of choice but at least I knew where they were & what they were up to. Poor Lulu would be told to go look in the refrigerator where something gross was always marinating. She’s a tough cookie though who always knew it was fake. All these boys are now grown men & none of them entered became filmmakers for a living which is sort of sad. Doing what you love doesn’t always pay the bills when work is hard to come by. They really did some cool zombie stuff though back in the day.

Now I will link back to my 2022 A-Z Challenge ~ Zombie. Then I’m going to go relax. I’m toast.

As always, more to come.

Thursday Thoughts ~ 10/6/22

Not too much on my mind. Oh who am I kidding?!? No one. Absolutely no one. Pretty sure you see right through me.

I’ll be brief though. The bird app aka Twitter saved me yesterday. Tuesday was angst filled. I was making stuff up & bawling. I couldn’t get myself to calm down. B tried, sweet Lulu tried. I was inconsolable.

Tweets are short & sweet. I wrote my disappointment. To get the intrusive thoughts out of my head. No place to put my pain or something along those lines. Then I went to bed.

In the morning, I had more notifications than ever before. I know we’re strangers but we have something in common that’s a tie that binds. No one else gets it unless they’ve had the same trauma. I felt the love or caring or empathy. Call it what you will. I’m not being overly dramatic when I say this cohort saved me. B, Lulu, & Ponyboy saved me too.

And I paid it forward. And damn that felt good. Be kind to your fellow human beings. You never know what anyone else is going through.

As always more to come.
