Our everyday life has become a very real zombie reality
Our favourite night of the year is almost upon us again!
Every year in the run up to 31st, people around the world start stock piling pints of fake blood and bundles of torn and bloodied clothes. They practice their best zombie limp around their living room, they sit in front of mirrors attempting to perfect their most empty-eyed stare/drool combination, whilst listening to “Thriller” on repeat to make sure they still remember all the words from last year….All in preparation for the annual zombie uprising on Halloween…
Every November 1st, the zombie hoard disperses and everybody goes back to their normal lives; they go to work, they pay their taxes, or they study and they try every day to prepare themselves for a better future. They might sit staring at the television, or they may sit with their eyes fixed on their phones…
I thought the zombie uprising had finished?
Our everyday life has become a very real zombie reality! We dress and act like zombies for the 364 days leading up to Halloween so why not make a change this year? So order your Halloween costume now and join the zombie clan !
Let’s trade in our boring jobs for more exciting careers! Let’s dress as police officers and set off in hot pursuit of criminals! Lets sign up for military service and earn a medal or two!
We need to disguise ourselves as anything other than the zombies we already act like every single day! Part of Halloween is fantasy – creating a different reality that you can occupy with your own choice of character or persona; become a fire-fighter, become a pirate, become Elvis, become a lifeguard…
It’s time to stop just staring into space, let’s put some paint on that face – and you can just become a smurf.
