Living Two Lives

Diaries of a Zombie

Maybe I will continue those “diaries of a zombie.” If I did, the zombie-me would be a bit different from the zombies that Vervaeke, Mastropietro, and Miscevicand describe in their book Zombies in Western Culture: A Twenty-First Century Crisis. Within the book, they explain one characteristic of the zombie is that it is mindless. It wanders around and follows its urges — eating what is alive — whether hungry or not. They describe one scene from a movie where the zombie keeps eating, although it has no gut, and the “food” falls to the floor once devoured.

Really, a zombie story?
