[You didn't believe me! Why didn't you believe me??]

My entire life I have believed in zombies. Yeah, the whole undead nonsense.

What the hell could ever destroy the human race faster than an untectable strain (most likely viral) that infects by mouth, blood, etc.? You're thinking of one, I'm sure, and it's already the global killer.

But what if there was something, like that, that traveled quicker? Perhaps the cells affected would be in the brain, first? Why is that so far-fetched?

Sometimes when I am feeling particularly paranoid, I will be afraid of the next train that arrives on the El. What if the next train pulled up and the plastic-coated windows were covered in blood? The driver is still going because he is fucking afraid, he doesn't know what to do. But he can't stop "Doors opening", and so they do, every stop like clockwork. He doesn't stop because he doesn't want to become one of them, but everyone was becoming one and the El windows are covered in blood and I am about to become one of them because the doors just... open. And I have nowhere to go.

Now, I know that is crazy, right? The idea of a crazy virus that spreads so quickly it would take over kill people it came in contact with in less than 3 days? That's crazy, right?

Well, of course, that's silly. It's crazy to think that there are things out there that we do not yet know, much less understand. It's crazy to think that while there have been legends and myths in every culture, there may also be some truth to those "lies". I mean, they've only stood the test of time, right? I mean, we know everything, just like we knew the earth was flat, and the sun revolved around the Earth. Hell, they killed Galileo over that biznazz years ago, right?

I am stupid for crawling into my bed each night, afraid that tonight may be the one that realizes all our Hollywood fantasies. Geez, I'm not the first person to give in to their fears.

I mean, after all, who would believe in zombies anyway?

[You modda fuckas.]
