First Day

by on October 26, 2012

This post was written for Trifecta’s weekend challenge, which was to write about zombies, particularly the classic zombie sighting in Haiti by Zora Neal Hurston in 1937. Fun subject, that. Enjoy!

Winifred leveled blazing eyes at the woman. “I am Death!” she said impressively. “I come to claim your soul!”

The previous Death sighed. “Winifred, that’s a zombie. She doesn’t have a soul.”

    lol awww At least she’s trying 😀

  4. Thanks for the giggle!

  5. Might take a while to get her to wield the Reaper’s sword. I like that death is named Winifred. 😀

    • If Death had to have a name, other than, you know, Death, I think Winifred’s a pretty good one, overall. 😛

  6. Haha! I like this. Very delightful! 😀

  7. Oops, that’s funny. Love the living dead humor.

  8. Excellent.

  13. Hilarious! Zombies rule – and drool!
