"What's in your head, in your head? Zombie, zombie, zombie."

My entire family and I are obsessed with The Walking Dead. We make absolute sure that we watch it every Sunday night. I'm actually quite surprised because my dad and one of my sisters, J, are giant scaredy cats.

J usually watches the Disney Channel until she falls asleep after watching something scary, but tonight she felt the need to sleep on the couch. I, being the serial pranker that I am, could not pass up this golden opportunity.

My family is also obsessed with Halloween, so we have countless masks stored in totes in our basement. I decided to grab the best zombie-like mask that we had to scare the crap out of her, and I knew just the one that would do the trick.

She was facing the back of the couch, so after putting the mask on, I got my face as close to hers as possible. It took a minute, but after smacking the couch cushion a few times she finally woke up. It took her a second to realize what was going on, but I could tell the exact moment it registered. Her eyes grew ten times their normal size and she screamed like a woman being mugged in a dark alley who had forgotten her rape whistle at home. What happened next, though, was something that I never could have anticipated in 1000 years. She socked me in the face! My sister, the biggest wuss on the planet, punched me square in the upper lip. It didn't really do much damage, but I almost wish that it did. Can you imagine?

"Hey, why the fat lip?"
"I scared the bejeezus out of J and she punched me."

It'd make one of the greatest stories. I always say if an experience can leave you with a great story then it was not in vain.

Day 3 - A song that makes you happy:

A lot of songs make me happy, but one that always puts a smile on my face is Young Folks by Peter, Bjorn and John. The whistling is just so darn infectious.


  1. I love me some Walking Dead. I loved, loved the pilot. To me, each episode since has been slowing down considerably, but I still like it enough to keep tuning in.

    And I probably would've punched you in the teeth too. ;)


  2. I agree. It's called The Walking Dead, I want to see some effing zombies. It's still good, though.

  3. The Cranberries! Nice title.

    Awesome mask, but I'm sorry to hear about the punch. Did it leave a mark?

  4. Nah. My lip was a little swollen, but it went down fairly quick.
