Zombie in the Kitchen






“Dad! One of those things off the news…in the kitchen!” Nicky stammered.
Les reached beside his armchair and picked up a cricket bat. “I thought you’d checked the doors?” he berated his wife.
“Thought you’d done it.”
The thing sat on its haunches, gumming the hide of a cat.
“Poor thing, just a girl.”
She craned her sallow head upwards. Taking a long stride down the wicket, Les hammered a straight six.
Her head thudded into the ceiling before hitting the floor with a squelch.
“Everything alright, Les?” His wife shouted.
“Do these things go in the green or the black bin?”

  1. I think that maybe it’s best to incinerate a zombie, just in case it got like that due to a virus! If you mulch it for the vegetable plot, you might end up turning into a zombie after eating your dinner.
    That’s a fun story, Michael, in a gross way 😉
