Hey Mr. Zombie Man!

On the way home from work, I walked past three kids. They all looked about 6-8 years old. One of the kids — a boy — looked at me and said “Hey Mr. Zombie man!”, then smiled widely at me. I kept on walking, confused, when another one of the kids — a girl this time — turned around and said, “Hey, you! Sorry, he’s a little… you know”, circling her finger around the side of her head. “Oh, don’t worry”, I said.

It took a few seconds, but then I realized: He wasn’t anything — but spot-on.

Carpe diem.
