28 Days of Writing - Zombies

It was a dark and stormy night.

No, really, it was.

The thunder and lightning kept waking the cat....and me.  Little did we know THEY were advancing under cover of the storm.  I was looking out the window.  Somehow the lightning flashes did not show them.

The doorbell rings.  Cat jumps sky high and then runs for cover, bouncing off Hubby's crotch.  I can fell my heart pounding as I throw on a robe and some shoes.  Hubby stirs and reaches for the shotgun.  Ever since we heard about the herd of mutants living in the forest nearby, we have started preparing ourselves for their attacks.

I look out the peephole.  I don't see anything out there.  I slowly and carefully open the door.

"Would you like to buy some Girl Scout Cookies?"


Girl Scouts.  Phew.  Glancing at the clock, I realize it's only 8:30 pm, a little late for these midgets but it was an early night for us.

Perhaps the mutants will get a quick snack and leave us alone for awhile.

I hope I didn't ruin your craving for Peanut Butter Patties.  Stay indoors at night and safely check out the other Zombies.

Oh, Girl Scouts. They're the worst. Scarier than Zombies.

No one ever comes here. I wouldn't come here unless I had to. :(

Katherine said...

But didn't you know? Zombies dress up like girl scouts to get in your home!!! said...

I love girl scout cookies. But only if they're made from real girl scouts.

Linda Medrano said...

Is the quick snack the girl scout or the cookies? I bought 4 packages of GSC last evening from Annika, my neighbor girl. If you told me she was a vampire I might go along with it. But she is not a zombie!

Zombies selling Girl Scout cookies? You have some very strange things going on down there! Very strange, indeed.

Or was that Evil Twin in disguise? Or not in disguise?

Blessings and Bear hugs!

@noname - That's right.

@Mariann - At least you don't have zombies.

@Katherine - I knew it, a disguise!

@Paula - They never are.

@Linda M. - Well, that's open to interpretation but I was thinking the Girl Scouts might get eaten.

@Rob - Just Girl Scouts to distract the Zombies!

I don't know what's worse, getting eaten by a zombie, or having to deal with girl scouts.

Ahahahahahahah!! I totally laughed out loud when I read, "Would you like to buy some Girl Scout Cookies?" -

Brilliant twist!

Ah, Girl Scouts selling cookies. It's the perfect blend of pastry temptation, and the guilt trip that arises from a child's sales pitch.
