They’ve been in the news a bit lately, those zombies. There was a Zombie Walk a couple of weeks ago and Boy dressed as one to attend a Halloween party. But today, I was the zombie: out of bed too early in order to be at work too early so I could do my bit for an urgent job that required all hands on deck. We all looked far too much like zombies, really, and probably sounded a bit that way too. I escaped early because, you know, brains? Mine wasn’t working.
