A few days have gone by now. Beans are long gone and I’m on my last candy bar. It hasn’t been too hot outside but the smell is everywhere. The smell of death….walking death. With all of the zombie apocalypse movies and books you would think that more people would have survived the initial outbreak but I guess it took them all by surprise. Seeing or reading it is one thing but let me tell you, it was crazy when it happened and it was so fast. You never realize how many people are around until panic kicks in. People make the stupidest decisions when they are in a panic. It’s like their brain shuts off and no logic is left. Like pushing a door that need to be pulled open, per the sign on the door by the handle, right up until the point they are attached from behind. Stupid people. The bad part is that their bad decision or lack of thinking just makes it harder for me to survive. There’s no win for me when living people are taken down.
I keep trying to compare what I’m seeing to books I have read or movies I’ve seen. Not quite sure about everything yet. I should write down what I know from Hollywood and then compare that with what’s happening here. I’ll have some firsthand knowledge soon. I’m going to head over to a neighbor’s house for some food. With these walkers scattered all over the place, street, yards, parked cars, inside homes, I don’t dare go too far. But how much longer can I last here… I’ll think better on a full stomach. Heading out in an hour or so.
