Thank you to Alastair Forbes for hosting SPF August 13, 2017.
“Should we tell the police?”
“Tell them what?”
“About the zombie. What was he?”
Hank covered his face with his hands.”Not a zombie, Ted. Just a homeless guy.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes, zombies aren’t real. Only on The Walking Dead.”
“How do you know? Ever seen one? I did.”
“Trust me. You didn’t. This guy was scary but he was human. Angry too, when you ran at him screaming.”
“I would remember doing that.” Ted narrowed his eyes at his friend.
“Listen, I told you not to drink your Grandpa’s moonshine. One of these days he’s going to notice you’ve been stealing gulps.”
“That’s besides the point. The homeless guy is an actual zombie. The police will believe me, Hank.”
“No, Ted, they won’t. Your ten, they’ll think you’re telling tales.”
“There’s the homeless guy stomping out of the police phone booth, now,” Hank muttered.
“Let’s get him!”
“I think he called the police. You were badgering him too much.”
“Yep, I doubt he was impressed with a drunk kid punching him as he was trying to sleep.”
“Where were you when I was fighting this zombie?”
Hank laughed,”I was filming a video of you for YouTube. You’ve got thousands of views.”
